Rain, Rain and More Rain!!!

Yesterday we received more rain in one dump than we've ever had before - over 100mm or 4 inches. It fell in just over 2 hours and of course there was minor flooding afterwards.

Farmer Phil, Ryan, Emma and I hopped in the ute and went for a drive to inspect the damage. Our farms were lucky to have escaped the major damage with just a couple of fences down. These photo's are of the dirt road between 3 of our farms with our neighbours farm on either side of the road. The council will have some repair work to do on the culvert when it dries out.

Taken about 2 hours after the rain had stopped.
