The last twenty four hours have thoroughly tested the new rain gauge! 17mm of rain on Tuesday, 35mm in the twelve hours to eight o’clock last night, then a further 55mm overnight. 104mm in just over a day, some kind of a record for Melbourne, especially in the middle of summer!

After 100mm of rain, trees and fence down

One big old tree down along Haughton road, two smaller scrubby things knocked the fence over at the corner of Monash University, the only other thing I noticed was how marvellously clean all the roads were today β€” the broken glass, bits of car, and other assorted crap is all gone.
