ABC News showed some dramatic footage, of the area of water coverage along
the Lachlan. Anyone thinking of going out into the Condobolin-Lake
Cargelligo area, take care. With the amount of rain out there, a lot of the
dirt roads tend to go to soup, which makes stopping quickly, and cornering
interesting. Last time I ventured into that area (work related), I had to
have the ute's brake rotors cleaned of baked mud, and for weeks, slabs of
Lachlan mud dropped from underneath the ute. It quite alarmed me, the first
time it happened. Probably not as much as the guy that was drivung fair up
my bum.. He dropped right back, for some reason. Probably though I had a
secret button, and could drop a load at any time.

> Hi all,
> After all the recent noise online here about Lake Cargelligo, Whoey Tank,
> Nombinnie, Round Hill, Back Yamma, and the wonderful birding ATM, don't
> plan on going out there anytime soon.
> Contacts in Euabalong, 25 mins north of Lake Cargelligo, expect to be cut
> off in the next few days. Condobolin has peaked twice already at higher
> than 6 metres. And Cowra's peak latest was 2M higher than expected
> according to the ABC this morning.
> Locals fully expect this flooding to exceed 1990 levels.
> A couple days ago another contact posted footage of a carp swimming across
> the Lake-Condobolin road on Facebook. Lake Cargelligo could get in neither
> flour for the bakery nor newspapers yesterday.
> So if you were excited about birding opportunities in Central West NSW
> anytime soon, forget about it. And from the news, I can only imagine most
> of western Vic is in a similar situation.
