As much as the rain is a PITA some of the time, you can be sure someone is grateful for it all the same. I've taken all my scopes/cameras/computers etc out of my obs and stored them back in the house to keep them out of the damp and I haven't fired an astro-image shot now for months because of either heat, cloud or rain. BUT I'm one of those who need that rain desperately to keep cattle alive through the winter and until there is a new growth spurt in the grass after spring. Our main dam was down to about 15% until this lot of rain started and our house tanks were also getting a bit sorry. So, yeah, it is a pain to be unable to get out there and run some sequences, but I'm happy to pay the price.
It hasn't stopped for two days and nights here in Yeppoon, it is that heavy that it impossible to check the rain gauge, however we got 100mm in 6 hours yesterday alone.
Haven't checked today yet but it looks pretty full.
