As the waters recede…

flooded bike path

Owen has sent in the above pic with this note:

Three days after the rain, the ford near Ginnenderra and Kingsford Smith became passable, though you wouldn’t want to be wearing your suit.

The bike is doing the right thing and checking the water depth before the owner attempts a crossing.

Or perhaps Holditz is right, and now the bike’s faithfully staying there, waiting for its owner.

No, the riders’s there.
He’s carrying the bike!

Another example of people’s ‘selfish’ behaviour in flood affected areas. The SES are telling people not to enter flood waters, in the belief that “she’ll be right”. Tragically people have drowned by not listening to their advice. And so it is here. The bike rider tried to cross the swollen waters but got swept away to his death. Only the bike stands there as a tombstone to the bike rider’s fatal foolhardiness.

That part of the bike path floods over after a brief shower let alone 3 weeks of rain.

Where, exactly, is this?

looks like the Melba corner of the intersection, where the Florey drain feeds in to Ginninderra Creek…
