2016 Flood

Just 2 days before the peak is expected,
For those of you familiar with the Mildura Ski Club 
this will give you an idea of how high the river is.
Richards pump will just stay dry we believe.
Normally 2 tiered lawn area and then down to a beach...
of variable width based on river height.

The river is flowing very fast, 
a family of ducks were struggling to stay near the shore 
but far enough away from the dogs.

These house boasts are now floating over the beach.
I am still quietly confident it wont breach the property.
We are as ready as we can be...except the sand bags.

we have loads of loam.....
and there are some bags in the shed somewhere.
Today is the first day over 40 degrees C
and it isnt even Summer yet.
A few drops of rain are coming down now...
big and loud on our tin roof.
The district experienced a storm which included a tornado, a week ago,
 so today's thunder storm will make few people very nervous.
More likely a dry electrical storm which will start bushfires.
Like I said, very nervous.
I just heard some hail...Oh dear.
