Well, the Bureau's "Daily Rainfall observations" site reports 185 mm as of 9:00am this morning.
For the last 5 days it shows:
Cumulative total, over 5 days of 267mm (or 10.5 inches - in the old money)
That's a lot of rain.
But no-one is complaining, here.
You see we live on the tops of a series of ridges.
So the rain runs down hill, rapidly, and away from here.
Last night my brother and I sat in "Pizzas in the Mist" (which could have been re-named "Pizzas in the Rain") and watched the peak of the mini-flood rise and then fall, over a period that it took us to eat a very fine meal.
That's the advantage of having gravity working for you. The water arrives, but it drains away very quickly.
It's not like the rains which fall in the Murray/Darling which run out onto the flat country, and sits there. Our rains flow to the Nepean River and the Wingecarribee River, which supply Sydney.
