yeah, so who's been saying there's no water in the mighty murray?

[and that is ment to be a marina, there is solid pontoon's and a concrete warf in there somewhere]

if people are some what confused, ill draw in paint where the pontoons and concrete warf is, but only if i have to.

Looks a lot like Berri to me ;) Most of my river work (surveying) has cooled off now. Regulators at Clayton and Narrung have been partly removed and areas around Chowilla, Lock 6 and 8 have been re-flooded. The silly ideas of pumping out the Coorong have gone quiet also,hopefully some life returns down there. Its good to see the area looking better again. I was working on a new stage of the Wellington Marina not to long ago and once finshed it had a whole 100mm of water in the channel. Should be looking good again now.

Hopefully the river still looks ok in 3 months time..

Anyone want to buy an aluminium punt on trailer powered by the mighty 4.0?

Your not wrong there, for us in Vic the weird thing is the direction its coming from, generally over the last few years I have been watching the weather, it has been coming from the bite across south east SA but now its coming from like Broome across the country and over or from Northern Qld and down. Thats why we are getting 30+ degree days and its still raining and being humid like Qld.

Give some of this water to perth :/ weve got none
X2

Lowest Rainfalls and driest seasons ever recorded since de white pella comin' for most parts over here.

The Dams only have dirt in 'em, the rocks are dying from dehydration and the last set of Muddies sold by a Tyre outlet was in August 2009.

It's making for some really dangerous bush fires ...

Truckster,

you can see the webcam of the Thompson anytime you like. It has a long way to go to be full.
Is it just me or does that look like it has not gone up 1mm since I last went there 2yrs ago?

its risen about another foot from here over night!
Tea Tea Crossing at the Coorong might be impassable for the first time in summer for years.
