I guess this will get filed under ''we were wrong''??  Although to be fair to the BoM the article was referencing drought breaking rains which haven't really occurred across the country.

224 mm for the week with 195 of that in the twenty four hours 'til 9am Friday.  Included in that was 41mm between 9am and 10.30am on Thursday morning when there were 2 groups of vets out playing!!  The courses will take a bit longer to dry out than from the falls a couple of weeks ago as the ground is already very wet.  Couple that with some high tides and high rainfall totals up the river and it makes it difficult to get the water off the courses.  And it doesn't look like it's over yet......

A couple of weeks ago we had a contractor in to grind down some of the raised joins on the concrete paths as a trial which seems to be satisfactory judging by the feedback received.  He will be coming back to do some more over the coming weeks and was actually due to be onsite yesterday but the rain washed him out. .  It is a fairly slow process that obviously has to be done during daylight hours so needs to be programmed to be done when the courses are quiet and when the contractor is available.  He also has to stop grinding when he hits the reinforcing so can't always completely remove the lip.
