Kirk Lane Bridge

Under water.

It's gone down a bit from this morning so the traffic is now passing. You'd still want to think twice in a sedan though.

Still raining though...

    so does this mean the end of the drought?

    I heard there was a bit of rain down your way

    Dunno - maybe on the coast it does, but it depends how much ends up in the main water supply dams. I know the Gold Coast ones have been overflowing for weeks, but Wivenhoe is still only at about 17% capacity - long way to go with that one.

    Far Outback Qld is still very dry, and has been for 5 years.

    Yep - probably not as much as Townsville got a few weeks back though.

    Rain is good! I hope your area gets what it needs. You don't drive a sedan do you? ; )

    Lea does. I have a 4wd Ute. :)

    One thing I don't miss about Samford is being flooded in with all the creeks so it took an extra half an hour to get to school (yay for the hour long car trip). A car got swept off the bridge near our place once and we always had to replace our water pumps from our creek down the back when we got more rain than expected. Still I bet once it all goes it'll be nice and green out there.

    Ah well our kidlets are home today 'cause even the bus didn't want to cross the creek this morning.

    Is this the bridge that you usually take 'waterfall' photos from?
    All that extra water is amazing!
  • David de Groot said:
    Nope, this spot is usually so low and placid that it's really not worth shooting most of the time. Some of the places I usually shoot from are currently under water!

    Gee Dave, that is a LOT of water mate... Your home isn't in danger or anything like that from flooding!?
  • David de Groot said:
    I think all the polar ice caps would have to melt and we'd need constant rain for weeks on end before our place would be in danger. We're about 260m above sea level and a good 100m above the creek.

    Wow, that's flowing. What a great shot for historical purposes.

    Indeed it was, and this was after it had gone down enough to be passable.
