Amazingly, driving on the Hume today, we saw flooded creeks and water across the road - Kyeamba and Little Billabong Creeks! Amazing, because for years we have not seen a drop of water in creeks in SE NSW. Hoping it is more widespread - but it didn't reach Gundagai. Am attacihng some pics that may be of interest to some.

Hi megan and Kevin,

Wonderful photos and so good to see water in those creeks again after all those dry years. 96mm so far for Wagga today and I see that the Hume is now closed at Holbrook.

There has been a lot of landcare/conservation work done along those creeks so hopefully they will have a new lease on life now.

Cheers,

Val
