Does any Rioter have a landowner friend at Lake George who keeps daily rain readings ?

Would be interested if anybody could post daily readings for say 27 Feb thru 6 March.

Thanks.

Yes, interesting.

Does Canberra have a greater percentage of reptoids per 1000 head of population?

I'm guessing yes.[/quote]

No. Tasmania's rate per head is higher.[/quote]

They have more heads per head of population?

It's a lake in Africa, sillies. Hence the occasional appearance of zebra.[/quote]

Good point...

I'm pretty sure it revolves around the Rand Corporation and its conspiracy, in league with both the saucer people and the reverse vampires, to steal our water supply.[/quote]

We had a very strong La Nina in 1998, probably the wettest year until 2011 (I remember it as wetter, actually). 2000 was an excellent snow year but I don't know if that translated to rainfall away from the alps.

It was caused by a fault line diverting a river way back. As my geography lessons come to mind. Possible oil finds there to depends on sediment depth. Age of the deposits are not to critical depth and source is. So imagine a nice big Jack up rig sitting there.

Didn't take long for it to empty, though.

I can't remember it lapping the edges of the road in 2000, but I do remember it was up there not long before they started duplication of the Fed Hwy, which was completed in time for the Olympic Games in Sydney.

At the time I wondered how well the drainage systems would cope and would the road ever get flooded. Ha, that has so far proved to be a pointless thought.

[quote comment="390488"]When I was a kid, Lake George being mostly full was its normal state, and we got excited when the levels went down. Now it's the reverse. I think the farmer has got used to having much bigger paddocks than he should have.[/quote]

And his sheep will have to learn how to swim again...

Correct.

It's Lake Wakatipu next to Queenstown in the southern island, which has dried up.

I have my sauce, made from 100% cow manure.
