Significant but sporadic rainfall across Monday and Tuesday caused both delight and devastation across the region.
The rainfall provided a much-needed physical and psychological boost to farmers in the southern Riverina and North East Victoria but caused landslips and further damage to communities and properties already devastated by the Upper Murray bushfire.
The Bureau of Meteorology said 23mm fell in Jingellic in the 24 hours to 9am Tuesday, while Falls Creek recorded 24mm, Mt Hotham 25mm and Tumbarumba recorded 22mm.
Only 4.6mm was recorded in Wodonga in the 24 hours to 9am Tuesday, while the Bureau said 14mm fell in Culcairn.
On Tuesday, 10mm fell in Albury-Wodonga, with the majority falling in a single spurt just after 2pm.
Walla farmer Ashley Paech said only 5mm had fallen overnight into Monday on his farm near Morgan's Lookout.
Mr Paech said there still wasn't much water in the dams as the rain didn't cause a lot of runoff, but overall the showers were beneficial.

"It adds to the 20mm we had about a fortnight ago," he said.
"It was good gentle rain, the dust is starting to settle a little bit and the ground accumulate some sort of moisture."
Mr Paech said the rain was a boost to lucerne crops and to stock, but more rain would be needed before sowing begins so moisture has accumulated in the soil.
While welcome by farmers, the rain had caused devastation in bushfire-affected areas of the Upper Murray.
