January 2012 rainfall

There was rain in our Mooloolah Valley gauge on 16 days in January, totalling 516mm. Of that, 204mm fell in one day! We were flooded-in for a day or two, but the trusty storm emergency kit came in handy. It has now been replenished and augmented with an emergency roll of toilet paper…something I had never thought to include until a ‘near miss’ this month.

Last year, we had 873mm. The average is 181mm.
