Not having had much rain this winter, the past 24 hours has certainly made up for it.
This is what our dam looked like yesterday at 17.15pm
|The bentonite which RMan added in April / May|
this year is definitely working. We have had
unseasonably hot weather recently and haven't
had much rain since the last downpour in mid-June
and there is still water in the dam...
A positive sign :)
Then, the Old Man started snoring...
... this was the state of it at 14.50p.m. today
|It's the first time we've ever had the tanks overflow|
Our rain water tanks are all overflowing...
And, at 15.40p.mm. our dam, which we estimate hold 750 000 ltrs is overflowing...
|The dam is officially overflowing.|
Uhhhhmmmm, RMan - the jetty is underwater...?
He didn't do such a bad job though, as he
eyeballed the height. Not too shabby :)
|The gully from the road to the dam - in full flood!|
What is it with dogs and water? Snow isexpected on the moutains tonight so it's
freezing cold outside, the water is wet (duh),
but they have to go in the water...
|Water is steered towards the dam from everywhere|
|Only the supports of the lower section of the jetty|
are still above water. Guess we won't be walking on
it at the moment LOL
