Mixed feelings about Gippsland delugeCat McGauran, Tuesday June 18, 2013 - 12:24 EST
More than 300 milimetres of rain has fallen across Gippsland since last Thursday.
With more rain forecast, farmers won't know for another week or so whether they've had too much on their farms.
Cropping and livestock farmer Tim Paulette, from Toongabbie, says although he'll lose some crops to the rain, he's glad the dry spell has broken.
"In the short to medium term, with perhaps a month to dry things out, if I could crystal ball, I just hope we get somewhere near an average rainfall for the rest of the year."
