Rain Rain Rain Rain!

Isn’t it just pissing it down!

Who’da thought bricks got thirsty, it’s been raining solidly for hours and the bricks of the building are only just starting to get slick.

Hurrah!

(BTW The weather radar is here)

I haven’t seen the ActewAGL webcams are darker than I’ve seen in quite a while.

Tim The Yowie Man must have done well.

Just had a look at the BOM Weather Radar and I see some slightly heavier falls on the way.

tim read the weather map is all

I should have promised to bring the rain in exchange for beautiful women sleeping with me.

now that’d be a good rep to get going…

The clouds have cleared, the stars are out and fireworks abound… 🙂

Yes, unfortunately the Satellite Picture shows the cloud moving out into the Pacific Ocean …… http://weather.ninemsn.com.au/weather/satellite/default.asp

ninemsn yuck! (Sorry, personal bias).

Much prefer the BOM animated satellite images http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDE00902.loop.shtml

Indeed

I’ve got the BOM radar loop out of Captains Flat streaming into my dashboard. sux to be a windoze l0s3r.

That BOM display is all very well Samuel, but that continual ‘back and forth’ motion tends to give me vertigo !

Samuel Gordon-Stewart Samuel Gordon-Stewart 10:53 pm 11 Jun 05

Fair enough…you can freeze it and control it with the buttons on the top of the page.

The Weather Company (who don’t sell rain) have some nice country/state satellite & radar images http://www.weatherzone.com.au/currentweather/satellites.jsp?state=AUS

hmmm, to clarify my first comment…I was trying to say that I haven’t seen the ActewAGL webcams with pictures as dark as they were for quite a long time.

That second link you put up is exactly the same picture as the ninemsn link.

johnboy johnboy 11:16 pm 11 Jun 05

gee, wonder which one is the original source???

No.. Wait… hmm maybe BOM could be the better place to actually get this information?

Canberra_unsung_hero Canberra_unsung_hero 11:26 pm 11 Jun 05

I think the IMPORTANT point is — will there be follow-up rain ?

Fiona Fiona 12:10 am 12 Jun 05

in another 6-8 months, probably.

Geoffco Geoffco 12:29 am 12 Jun 05

JB – which dashboard widget are you using? I’m assuming this is on your new ibook?

johnboy johnboy 1:02 am 12 Jun 05

It’s this one

But I’m not sure if I’m comfortable with the bandwith usage (ie is it only downloading the map I want or all of them?)

In any event it gives a great view out of the dashboard

Canberra_unsung_hero Canberra_unsung_hero 7:56 am 12 Jun 05

I most certainly hope it’s less than 6-8 months Fiona. I’ve already lost two shrubs and one tree (due to lack of water), and I can’t afford to turn the sprinkler on, because I get ‘slugged’ with a massive water bill from ACTEW if I do !

funny how you notice the instant green appear tinge in all the grass…within a day of some rain!

Samuel Gordon-Stewart Samuel Gordon-Stewart 4:11 pm 12 Jun 05

Yes, the green tinge is nice. I would like to see more rain…there is some cloud forming near Adelaide, perhaps if you hold your breath and get Tim to shake his stick it will rain again.
