Hello Friday Smilers....from wet, windy Queensland....YIPPEEE!!! So I'm smiling and happy today because it is raining, not heavy but wet and cold like winter....but mostly I'm pleased because not only is it raining on the coast but inland across the east coast where they've been in drought for years - our place in Yeppoon just now at 5pm.
It is raining on parched communities in Queensland's outback, some of which have not seen a drop in half a year.
About 27 millimetres fell in Windorah in the 24 hours to 9:00am (AEST), 19mm on Thargomindah and 8mm on Longreach, but farmers say more is needed to green their grass.
They need so much more. We live at the very bottom of the light grey area on the coast.
Why not join in a 'spread the good times' -over at Annies blog and in the meantime, hugs and happy smiles Robyn
