Great stuff Colin. Thanks for bringing those archives together.

A few points ...The current dusty weather 2019 is being compared to 2002 drought and polar vortex heat anomaly
and in 2009 that was the last year of a prolonged drought as well.

The 2000s drought in Australia, also known as the Millennium drought[1] is said by some to be the worst drought recorded since European settlement.[2]

This drought affected most of southern Australia, including its largest cities and largest agricultural region (the Murray–Darling basin). It commenced with low rainfall conditions in late 1996 and through 1997, and worsened through particularly dry years in 2001 and 2002. By 2003 it was recognised as the worst drought on record.[2]

The 2010-11 flooding came after the drought .
