36mm in my rain gauge for the preceding 24hrs & we didn't get anywhere near the worst of it.

Pretty much nothing here in Melb, some showers and that’s about it. Maybe tomorrow

I think that the forecasts have been pretty good for this event. Yes the main part of the system moved further north than expected sparing Melbourne but several places got over 100mm to 9am this morning and there is another wave coming later today.

Looks like Muppet and the Doc got quite a bit..

I was planning on a deluge to save me from tidying up my in-laws garden. It's not looking good.

We've had about 87 mm here. It's been going around Benalla. We got 60 mm between 4 am and 8 am this morning but it hasn't rained since.

It seems a farmer near Euroa built a wall to channel water into his dam. Which worked, but the overflow has blocked the freeway! :doh:

Another 13.5mm at my place today so yes Melbourne missed most of it. But the North Eastern parts of the state have been hit hard.

It hasn't been that bad. Yes it did rain heavy but they blew it out of the water, only because they didn't know what the hell was going to happen. The places that have flooded normally flood anyway and they've much much worse in the past. It just seems that any news is bad news and it travels faster than ever.

Live on an island.. most of it drained off.

I guess it really does depend on where it falls, we got 84mm Sunday and that was really one main early morning storm and you wouldn't have known.

I was cleaning/moving stuff into our completed renos on Saturday - it started gently raining, but then at about 3pm we got a huge gust that snapped a big branch off one of our trees and dropped it half over the neighbour's fence. No bad damage, but all my girls including Bibi were on the water sailing (busted rib has kept me from sailing for last few weeks)! I raced over to the club to find Bibi with her instructor surfing in to the boat ramp at a great rate of knots. They survived but had an exciting time with no visibility, but every other boat in the fleet got knocked down by the big gust. The rescue boat had a busy time of it, but everyone was safe in the end.

Sunday was gloriously sunny and now its pissing down in Sydney.
