ballamara, my fandangle gadget tells porkies so I also rely on the old rain gauge. It seems to agree with the BOM readings so that gives me confidence in my figures. 🙂
The electronic rain gauges are prone to spiders building webs inside and slowing up the tipping mechanism (like a seesaw).
Ahhh, so that is why. Well it looks like another job, exterminating more spiders.
Glad you had a wetter year, I want spreadsheet thingo like yours, probably need to get a rain gauge first 🙂 Will probably just stick to my fave BOM site for now, was just having a look at last years stats, it was a dry year in Adelaide, annual rainfall of 395.2mm, 542 is the average, no wonder my fruit trees are looking sad, must water more!
Should fire this thread up again. We had a couple of visitors today, they came right up to the house. We live in town so wallabies aren’t that common.
This looks like a mum and her teenager.
Our rainfall has been up and down this year. It went from extremely dry in September to very wet in October.
The high rain in March was from the remnants of Cyclone Debbie.
Aww -how special to have such visitors in your garden!
