Just looked at the forecast movement for Tropical Cyclone Ului.

As if they haven't had enough rain so far.

We will be travelling through outback NSW and QLD in May and June. Looks like we may have to be versatile in choosing where to go. I'm sure there will be plenty of water still around then.

I'm glad I ain't too scared to be lazy

A bit more rain here won't hurt us ;)

Might put a real good flow through the whole Murray/Darling system. The latest flood is expected to make it a fair way down.

Hi Kev
Mother Nature is a very strange thing. The Lower Lakes at the Coorong are in a real bad way with no water. It was reported the other day that there are large flocks of Pelicans gathering at Lake Albert, which is almost dry. Like they said, do the Pelicans know that there is a lot of water heading down there - we can only hope.


Cheers

Pelicans know better than any human as to what is happening ;)

The water level in St George is now back to normal height above the weir, so there isn't much more water left to go through. I would guess there is only about 50GL per day at the most passing St George.

I know that the pelicans have an uncanny ability to know when water is coming down the rivers but have they been told about all the dams up stream that are sucking our system dry.

You know how greedy those Queerslanders and Cockroaches can be.

After they take out the water they need for cotton farming hardly any will get over the border into SA.

Let's hope it keeps raining and if they get their fill some water may get to the Coorong.

How about the SA folk stop complaining and just get it to rain in SA then the water can rightfully be theirs ;)

I've been keeping an eye on this one, we are moving back to Bundaberg and were planning to take the motorbike back on Sunday. Guess I might have to re-think those plans.
We've travelled to Phillip Island a few times through some terrible weather (rain,snow,wind) but that was mostly unexpected, don't know about this though.
When we lived there before ('03 - '07) always said I wanted to experience a cyclone, but not riding into it on a motorbike.
mmmmm......... might just take the cruiser.

Also have a look at my favourite site for coming days. It is quite accurate especially the first week.

Give some to SA. The lower lakes are dying!!

Polly's go down there and say "hey there's birds here, whats the problem!". Problem is they are the wrong birds! Whole eco system is stuffed.

Bring down the damn water.

While I do not want to see major floods in Qld in the central west of NSW we still have very low dam levels eg Wyanagla 7.7 Carcoar 6% Burrendong around 12%. Windermere 18% Lake Lyal 40% and Oberon dam 10%.
Most of the farmers dams are now full so if we get a bit more we may get some run off

Where are you currently OG? We've been busy this last week in the Whitsundays preparing for any situation.
