Elvis, in my opinion it's quite normal that things look nasty. When I look a little 'Waggawagga", I did drink something else, not only beer...

Ah...Wagga Wagga...a lovely place. I lived there for some time back in 1969, and it's also the town my Mother's family comes from.

They are certainly copping it bad with the floods at the moment...in fact they say that this flood will be worst in over 150 years.

I still have an Aunt living down there, but if the floods only extend as far as they say, then she will be outside the danger zone.

By the by...Wagga Wagga is an aboriginal name from the original inhabitants, the Wiradjuri people, meaning "the place of many crows".

Cheers, Vince

Last year it was Queensland this year its New South Wales
Highest floods for the past 140 years in some places.
Wet damp and humid, I wouldn't like to be in the low lying areas

NSW had flooding last year too.
About 12 months ago I was up at Menindee Lakes (an hour south of Broken Hill) with my fuel truck supporting a rescue chopper placed there on standby.

Otherwise I'm pretty dry at the minute down in Vic. The recent rain has caused problems with the airport upgrade constructions however.

And due to government funding, they have a pretty strict deadline.

Good to hear you are dry at the moment Fireman...but the water is moving "downstream" from the Riverina district and threatens to flood parts of Victoria too. Will you be out of harms way where you are mate?

Cheers, Vince

Yeah, in town where I am never floods. The low lying areas can get into trouble mostly due to rain fall up stream of the two rivers that cut through the area (one comes from the main water catchment area in the hills, Lake Glenmaggie dam).

The Riverina won't affect too much to the east of Melbourne where I am, if anything it will cut across the west of Vic and into SA where the Murry meets the sea.

Too wet. But we have had some false alarms due to leaking roofs setting off automated alarm systems.
