Ugh, sorry for the extra work all that has made for you.So, we've had 170mm of rain in 48 hours. Not sure how much fell after that because the measuring jug flooded.
On it's own that's a fair bit of rain and not that dramatic. The problem is this is a mountain and what falls higher up, comes down. Someone said it was due to something called gravity.
Shame it doesn't seem to work with money.............
So these are pictures of some of the damage. It doesn't look too bad. However these mini land slides go all the way up and all the way down the tracks in and out of here. Both tracks are impassible with a vehicle currently.
Flood gully East. The water is moving so fast you couldn't stand up in it.

Behind the sheep shed. Doesn't look too serious until you look at the tree roots. A bit of a breeze and these will fall over..............on to the sheep shed.

Another join a bit further down. There are places like this up and down the track.
This one is three feet deep.
