The rain has been good while it's lasted.. but today is so hot!! In Brisbane!

Is it true that Gatton, Qld is under water/badly flooded?

I'm about 30klms from Gatton and although we have had good rain, it is not flooding around here. I think the Boonah and Rathdowney area has had alot more rainfall than us especially in the last few days - see Suzie Q's replies in the other thread.

We have just have a shower go over with some fairly heavy rain but it only lasted and 15 mins. We have had around 4 inches of rain over the last week but by what Suzie has said she got 4 inches in one night.

Yes Freddy, 130mm whatever that equates to in inches!!!

That did cause the creek to come up and break it's banks a bit. The problem was with the water that would hit us later from 'up the mountain'.

I can hear rumblings out there now.

I will go and see hubby and see if we will try and swim the cattle home before we get any more.
