Nice and sunny now out west but last 3 days have been wet. I managed to ride in between the rain but floodways were doing there job so had to back track a bit...also had to go through some roadworks which had turned to slush...wasnt nice, ended up sitting behind a road train and just sat in his wheel tracks....Its needed and with the little bit that we got last month its looking nice and green for a change

65mm at Meandarra Wednesday night, so that meant I drove out there for nothing as they can't load in the rain at Graincorp. Lucky I got a load back in Dalby as it would have been $400 worth of fuel wasted. :wink:

There has been flooding in places especially to the north of brisbane i am led to believe.



Managed to get a loop in yesterday morning before the rain arrived...so ends our long dryish spell :roll:

We've had 194mm at our place in the last few days. I've managed to keep up the commuting with only one soft lift home yesterday :)

This morning I had to make a detour due to a flooded road.

me too, but my commute is only 7km each way.

On another note, savage humidity early this morning, and then was 30 degrees by 10am :shock:

decided to ride home on Sandgate Rd rather than the wetlands. it's cooler going faster....nevertheless, every traffic light I stopped at reminded me of the need to drink a tallie when I got home, in which I am now ensconced, along with my neighbor.....

Very thick fog on the Southside early this morning, might as well have been raining.

I hope you got more in your mouth than she did!! :shock:

Mind you, if it was VB, I wouldn't blame you for making it MISS your mouth!

As a beer, it makes a damn good drain cleaner! :wink:

I think it may have killed my garmin 610, appears to be some moisture under the touch screen and it won't register any touches :(

IF, you did see a Hahn in my hand, it would only be because the rednecks that are in charge of the beer they stock at a particular venue, are unaware of what is good, and what is bad in the way of beer! Sometimes when you're 'drier than a dead dingo's donga', you have to take the best of a bad bunch!

The Bearded Dragon have Sparkling AND Pale on tap mate. That's all I would have been partaking of.
Back on topic.... this current Qld weather that we're having is now going to cause me to visit the fridge to rehydrate. Guess what colour the label will be stef.

Chuck it in a ziplock bag with some rice and hope the moisture gets absorbed.
