Thanks very much to everyone who sent in photos of The Big Wet. The slideshow is looking great.
Above is an incredibly lavish video of the Googong spillway (the dam they said would never fill) in action posted to YouTube with this note:
The extraordinary rainfall in the Canberra region throughout 2010 has brought the region’s dam levels up to 100% capacity for the first time in 12 years. The rain has also stimulated tremendous flora and fauna activity. The newly completed Googong Dam Spillway was christened on December 3rd in spectacular style.
