Sums up the day.................... by 


Not a photo to be proud of …………. but really summed up the day………… Mannum SA had close to half our annual rainfall in just on a couple of hours – creeks that hadnt had water in them since 1991 where tearing down bridges and carrying away the top soil.
The two ducks had found a Temp lake about 5km from and about 500meters above what is normally the closest water…………. to see them swimming towards the white line without a care in the world made you stop and think things could have been worse.
A range of the damage around Mannum can be seen on http://ontheriver.smugmug.com under Mannum Floods – none of these are for sale, but gives you an idea what we went through!

    Was wondering if you were washed away or just had your hands full on the day Dave.

  • We where fine thanks – we pushed the water to everyone around us!! Out lying areas of Mannum are a bit of a mess – but the water has now gone and just red dirt every where.
