      You've seen this, but this was taken in late September...



      ...I'll try and go out on the weekend for another look. Might even go this afternoon if I get an early mark.

      I'd forgotten what a nice twisty road it is that takes you to the boat ramp I photographed above. It's not long at all, it would make a great hill climb course.

      Might have to go back out when it's not so busy. There was heaps of rubber necking going on yesterday!

      Sounds like Queanbeyan is going to be affected by flooding today.

      Last week Sullivans Creek through O'Connor/Turner was almost lapping the road at the David Street bridge. Our place is not too far from there, a bit closer to Lyneham, but we probably have 5-7m grace, haha.

      I might take a drive out to see if Lake George is starting to fill. Seemed to have missed most of the rain thus far

      I had a look the other weekend. If you go out via Lake Road near Bungendore you can see a bit, and the level has increased slightly from late September.

      From the lookout on the highway it's again only a small increase that can be seen. I'd say you'd need an elevated position like Marked Tree Road (near old Collector turn off), but last week access was limited due to flooding, so not sure how you'd go, besides getting wet and muddy.



      This was the view from Marked Tree Rd in mid-September (water levels have dropped a bit since then)...






      ...and from the Fed Hwy lookout last Sunday...

      Wow- Riverside Plaza has never been a more appropriate name.

      It's up quite a bit where the molongolo goes under the Tuggers parkway. Was rather impressive seeing a knob jockey nearly get cleaned up, stopped partially on the road of the Cotter road exit to take some piccies.

      Lima - I'm sure you didnt stop right on the edge of an 100/80 zone exit, and actually get out of the car while the wheels were still in the road/lane. Pulling off out of traffic I can understand, but seriously, when it rains I think it causes the brains of some drivers to swell up and stop functioning.

      Haha, yeah, I was in the back seat of a moving car when I took that pic.

      The rubberneckers on Tugg Pkwy nearly caused quite a few accidents from all I heard. Amazing stuff.

      Coming past the lake all the way down to Scrivener was amazing. The fast moving debris in the lake was staggering.

      Apparently, at peak, Googong was up a metre over the top. That meant more water passing over than Niagara Falls.

      Well, because I'm a sad case I went out to Scrivener Dam again this evening. As Steve said the driftwood throughout the lake was astonishing, really, and watching it spill over the edge of the dam was pretty cool!

      I have another clip to come which shows the debris much better, but for now...
