Rained in: Reined in.

Another wet one. The air is dripping wet and the BOM only says ' a few showers'. But here in Beachmere it is buckets of the stuff. Constant.  Overcast. Darkened all over by a low grey sky.

Very grey.

The tip of Moreton Island seem to act as a hook fishing for precipitation in the Coral Sea. Cape Moreton is one of the wettest parts of the Brisbane region with precipitation spread evenly throughout the year compared to other parts of South East Queensland. It receives an annual average rainfall of 1,567 mm. Just north of here, the Glass House Mountains is drowned by an annual fall of 1850 mm. Both locations are in cooee of one another. Such wetness is unusual this far south.

I say: I'm glad that I live on sand.
