The rain is back!
This photo of Windemere Dam was taken a week or so ago when the sun was shining. It was the first time in months that we had driven from Kandos to Mudgee. The interesting thing about this dam is that is is currently only 60% full, one of the few WaterNSW dams that is not right up to the brim at 100% because water is released downstream on a regular basis.
Below is a photo I took from the train between Penrith and the Sydney city today. With heavy rains, the dams overflowing and water logged land, low lying areas are flooding again.
As Hanrahan said after the drought:
And every creek a banker ran, And dams filled overtop; "We'll all be rooned," said Hanrahan, "If this rain doesn't stop."
