When it does rain …..it pours       

Never fear….. it rains here . Two types of rainfall events are common in the Otways . Orography ( the elevation and the slope) makes them both happen . More of easterly southerly and southwesterlies after the election when all the panic about  disaster has died down. see notes posted on otwaysonline .blogspot.com and swearthnews.blogspot.com

The sketch shows the effect of a predictable but not well known rainfall pattern in November 1995  . 2006 has not been not been normal , Infact the drought affecting southern Victoria has been the worst on record .
