Arriving home to 65mm in the rain gauge is an amazing thing! Such a beautiful sight to see.

All we can think is, how much did we really get? Since we were off reserve for almost four weeks and the rain was falling in the first week we were away, some will have evaporated from the gauge. The Mulligan still continues to trickle across the driveway.

Now it's raining again. We've been home for a week and so far another 13.5mm has been collected in the gauge. As of this morning and the rain continues.

We're looking forward to this year's volunteers arriving so they can enjoy Ethabuka at its finest.
