many folk in oz know
its very very very WET in NSW right now..
Sams Creek today
flood waters around here rise quickly and recede quite quickly too
(this is WAAAAY lower than yesterday)
dang the water is LOUD over the rocks!
I had to go to Bega today
Bega river flooded yesterday (only minor floooding - river is now in smart retreat)
this is the still swamped playing fields under the Bega bridge
(or as farmer phil calls it - 'our old place'...
yep this was his grandfathers farm up until the mid 1970s
when the state government resumed the land to build the new bridge)
yes I know - I'm taking pics while driving again...
I blame my father who used to simultaneously shoot video and drive AND talk on the CB radio ....
the bureau of meteorology (aka the BOM)
predict more big rain tomorrow and sunday
la nina is certainly making her presence known!
we watch and wait
ps I got word yesterday that I have been shortlisted as a finalist
small waa-hoo and happy dance
