Our yard with waterfront views.
Been wondering how you were getting on up there!

DF,
Good shots of the mine. I bet it would have been terrifying at ground level, just looking at the turbulence in the flow.
All gone from here at the moment, but the few showers around here, are making the locals nervous again.

Beach King and I were making twice/day checks on peak heights and locations, to help estimate what we would get in the 'ville.
Luckily everything seemed to flatten out and arrive in an orderly fashion.

The major concern was initially the gully that runs through town.
It came up quickly and put water into quite a few houses.

Not the same magnitude as Emerald though.


cheers,
185.

I thought you were having a drought!
We are......and quite a lot ofus are still having a drought, just the drought with some green grass. Toowoomba is at 11% storage, the Brisbane region is about 27%.

Emerald region is about 127%

Hey have you worked out that Bonanza pic yet???

Drought? What drought!

The Burdekin Falls Dam is about 150% capacity, 3.5 m over the wall - that's about one Sydney Harbour a day going over the wall and out to sea.

Did you get that? ONE SYDNEY HARBOUR A DAY going over the wall!

Gotta go to Longreach tomorrow - will fly down the Thompson and take some pics.

Latest I heard was Fairburn was at 150% capacity at the moment.
Would have been a wild old river if the dam wasn't there.
There appears to have absolutely torrential rain in the Nogoa and Belyando catchment. Anecdotal reports from graziers in that area, are only starting to come out now.

Hope you blokes in the SE get some rain in the BNE river catchment soon.

The LAT/LONG on your inertial nav seems to be the closest point to the pole on the Hong Kong/New York track..

Dams at 150%

If anyone has any pics, video or links to same, please post here, I'd love to see it. (The Hume Weir got to 105% once, but I don't have a shot to show you...)

Burdekin Falls Dam - with about 2 m of water going over the wall.

Hey Doc, that is impressive. I bet it was even more impressive being there in person. I'm looking forward to seeing the photos of your trip to Longreach.

Thanks mate.

If its not too much to ask, CAN WE PLEASE HAVE OUR RAIN BACK???

Bluddy Queenslanders.

36C and 78% day in day out is becoming a bit tiresome.

I was in Albury 12 months ago when the Hume Weir was at 4%... I was genuinely shocked

Yeah Hempy, summer showers here have given the grass a bit of a green tinge, but in reality it is still bluddy dry here. The weir is about 20% at the moment. I was water skiing with some mates last Thursday and we had to be very careful of the dead timber - its not the ones you can see that are the problem, its the branches just below the water that can do the real damage - to the boat and the skier! (Still great fun though!)

Cooda, may we borrow it before you have it back? I reckon a few days of rain like the Queenslanders have had would top the storages up a little!

Jabawocky The picture you mentioned doesn't look familiar to me, should it?
And I can't make out the tail number either.
