Some of the worst hit drought-affected areas of the Upper Hunter received a much needed drenching of rain at the weekend.
It's been described as some of the best rainfall in years and creeks that haven't flowed for a very long time now have water running through them.
It was ex-Tropical Cyclone Trevor that was to thank for the dumping of rain on Friday night and into Saturday morning and some of the rainfall numbers recorded include:
- Cassilis 128mm
- Merriwa 100mm
- Bunnan 91mm
- Scone 66mm
- McCullys Gap 82mm
