We had 3/4” in about 20 mins yesterday, unfortunately the drains couldn’t cope in the yard. Had another 1/3” today

We got a very welcome 15mm last night, then another 5mm this afternoon.
Got another 12mm forecast for tomorrow. I hope it actually gets here.

Another thunderstorm and another 15mm. I was feeding cows silage in rings feeder yesterday morning in a dust bowl and tonight it was like a swimming pool.
 
Well, seems like we are getting all the rain that others have been having the last couple of days. Absolutely bucketing it down right now. I haven't even bothered getting out of bed yet the rain is so heavy. I saw flood warnings last night... Possibly the most accurate the forecast has been this year. Just sat here praying it's not flattening crops etc!!

June/July where pretty dry months last year, it then made up for it in -August/September/October.............. I’d much sooner be getting some rain at this time of year and have it dry from August-October
My thoughts exactly - I had visions this drought would break 1st August when the combine came out the shed. With such a wet time now I'm hopeful we are getting some of it out the way early.

Finally some constant rain, started 530 turned torrential around 9, eased off for a bit so we braved it and went fencing, got soaked to the skin, mentioned to OH we really ought to have had a day off and gone to the coast..
