I'm extremely late posting this, we have been inundated with water at our place this last week. My neighbour has a rain gauge and had 640mm or 25 inches of rain in just two days which is close to half our yearly rainfall. I was upto my calves in water in our garden trying to clear leaf litter and debris coming from the properties above us, trying to let the water in our yard out to run to the lowest point down the road. Then I looked under our house and amongst the support pylons was a dry patch of earth bubbling up as water came up, as if a spring had started beneath our dining room. We have had another 8inches (20cm) since
The local waterfall had an immense amount of water going over it for the following days as it filtered through the creeks, sadly the amount of rainfall also caused significant damage to many local bushwalks, washing a $750,000 bridge away (again). Waterfall at end of Charles Darwin walk and in usual weather National Parks and Wildlife Service
The local railway line had a large landslide which has seen the cancellation of all train services for the foreseeable future whilst the engineers and track maintenance crews work out how to repair the line and communication requirements.
On the plus side grateful that all the bushfires that have caused severe damage to our state are now out and the Warragamba Dam (Sydney's water supply) has reached over 81% of it's capacity meaning the water restrictions brought in during the last six months will be relaxed (the dam was around 40%) and our local dams are at 96% capacity.

My sincere apologies for how late I am running with this one ladies. Hopefully the weather will settle back into a more usual pattern and everything will dry out and the plants I cut back harshly when the fires were surrounding us start to regrow...
Many thanks for looking in...
