"We don't need any more rain."
It's not something you hear farmer's saying all too often, but that seems to be the consensus around the Border at the moment, according to Daniel Mickan.
Mr Mickan runs a farm just south of Walla and says any more rain could be a bit of a concern.
"The rain sort of stuffs you," he said.
"It sort of snowballs for everyone; if a contractor is up north and he's coming down to do his job or the next job, it's just frustrating.
"Nothing we can do about it though.
"But it is frustrating and I guess that's part of farming, but the weather is out of our hands."

Elders Albury senior agronomist Chris Toohey said the full extent of the damage would be clear until after it had stopped raining.
"It all really depends on the conditions you have after the rain," he said.
"Like how long it lasts, how much humidity you get, because obviously if it stays humid that's when you get more severe damage to grain as opposed to if it dries out quickly and you get wind and things like that.
"With the prices the way they are we're hoping the damage isn't real significant."
Mr Toohey said there had been more than 100mm in the Upper Murray area.
'So that has an impact further down," he said.
"The Billabong Creek will no doubt flood and cause problems with growers along the Billabong.
"But it doesn't matter if you're on a flood plain or not, you're going to be inundated."
Farmer near Walla Peter Rayner said he wasn't too concerned about his canola.
"The canola is all in windrow, so it can handle the rain OK," he said.
