Anyone going for rowing lessons at the Mosman Rowing Club?
Years ago I worked on three Multi Million dollar homes in Mosman...for a few years. Honestly they are so stuck up, wouldn't be able to get pully jack out of the crack.

Are they getting any rain west of the ranges up there in SEQ?
.
Yes, good falls mostly everywhere right out into the Darling Downs region.

We got 65mm (Sunshine Coast Hinterland) and it was very heavy around 3am.

Must have been flooded by that $500, 000 sports grant that's doing the rounds.
you mean the grant that was given direct to needy sporting groups in LNP seat and a few LABOR seats cutting out the top sporting management group so they got their noses out of joint grant?
If anyone would know about pork barrelling Labor would so they are right onto it.

The only GOOD thing Labor has done in recent years besides lose the unlosable election is they have now decided to DROP their stupid "Franking credits" policy.
It has taken them a while to come to that decision given those involved in their Caucus meetings.

They even wheeled out BS Bill for the announcement.
Problem is they are now "blaming " that policy for their election loss .
They still don't get though.
It was their usual HIGH TAXES and UNCOSTED extreme emissions policies combined with assistance from C Bowen saying DONT vote for us if you don't like it and BOB BROWN lent his help with his parade over Adani.
You can toss in BS BILLS bald faced lies to the tradie on the Qld docks and that tradies mistreatment for daring to ask the question as a nail in the labor coffin to.

But is any flowing west to where it's needed most, to the Paroo/Darling river system?
.
need a few more easterly breezes to blow the wet WEATHER inland.
NE NSW and SEQ always get the extreme wet weather but it rarely heads further west.
Victoria got a bit of rain but not building a new dam or two means that water just runs off or soaks into the ground and provides no ongoing benefits

I think we'll need a cyclone to cross the coast and dump the rain into western QLD/NSW.

It would make the media happy because it would give them the trifecta of Australia......Drought, fires and floods.
There initial reporting is always intense with Hyperbole but then they start getting trashy and looking for the next big thing.
They basically dropped the drought to an afterthought when they realised there was more headlines in fires.
Now they are edging towards "flood" reporting.
We don't need floods but we need gentle soaking rains...and a lot of it.

This will help the dams and may not show yet in the figures.
Mainly it was the election bimbo National. It was more then 500 grand. It doesn’t matter because for 30 years they help marginal seats even though some strong hold seats...not a penny. Idiot voters both sides. Morons. Where I live...never Labor or independent..they complain all the bloody time. State and federal...morons.

In early November, the Mt Nardi fire, which started with a lightning strike weeks earlier, flared up in hot, gusty conditions after a record dry spell.

Dr Kooyman said historical logging amplified the effect of the fire, making it hotter, and extending its reach further than any fire previously.

"Also, the rainforest was logged out and clear-felled and converted to eucalypt forest, which has decreased the area of rainforest and expanded the reach of the fire, and the consequence of that has been dramatic."

But with thousands of neighbours adjoining the park, Nimbin Fire Brigade senior deputy captain Charlie Cohen said they were called to a different section.

He said the cutbacks to NPWS staff, and the resulting reduction in maintenance, nearly cost him and his crew their lives.

Dr Kooyman said the level of attention the nightcap Gondwana species received from government was minimal.

"Compared to Wollemi, there hasn't been the drum-beating so there hasn't been the attention focused on the nightcap," he said.

"Which is ironic, given that in terms of the Gondwanan rainforest, the nightcap represents the highest-value forest in NSW and has more concentration of threatened species than anywhere in Australia."

Isn't that the resposibility of the Palaszczuk. labour government?
