Been speaking to my brother who is on his way back from Lyndhurst. Has had to do a few creek crossings one being nearly 1mtr deep. Reached Leigh Creek and the creek on the south side of town was at 1,8mtr. He went back out there an hour later and the marker has disappeared so its well over 3mtrs. Also the road out to the coal mine has been cut. Has stopped raining there now so he is waiting for the creek to drop enough to cross, 4-5hrs if no more rain.

Interesting and I had been wondering how this deluge coincides with the steady flow of water south - I guess it just adds to the volume. There must be a fair chance of water reaching SA.

Kind regards

Was planning on doing a day trip out there on Sunday.

The dual fuel VE Commodore (company car)has both fuel tanks full to the brim and I just got a call to tell me my next car is ready for change over. Wouldn't want all that fuel to go to waste. About 1300kms worth.

I was planning to go as far as Marree and back but looks like there might be a change of plans. Mate of mine has a holiday house at Hammond, so might only get that far.

FYI....here's a live web cam feed from his place at Hammond. Also runs a weather station up there.
