Handy, we 've been flooded in here for about four weeks now - it'll drop here so we can get out and then won't be able to get past your place! Botheration!

You will have to come south and stay with us here in the Boro........if you can get across the Cooper!!

As dry as an old camels' phart in this neck of the woods!!!

Pity so much water goes into the desert and evaporates. Although the pastorlaists will certainly be smiling.
The southern states D E S P E R A T E L Y want water into the Darling system which flows into the Murray. Another year with below average rainfall will mean bankruptcy for many irrigators and goodness knows what damage to communities that rely on the Murray for drinking water.
