Diggers started yesterday apparently to open the Ellesemere cut . If youve got a spot thats on the edge of the water it will be a bit dryer by next weekend. Anyhow will still pull the trigger on something Im sure.

Went out to have a quick look today . Its chock full , quite a bit  higher than last week so should be sweet. With all this rain they will have to get it open again . Flooded paddocks all over and some covered with mallards , parries. Looking good......Except for the sunny weather forecast  Grin.
