When I drove to Potch this morning I expected the river to be up but saw the flat rocks exposed. But by the time I drove back over the bridge, returning from the Bert's Bricks 21km in Potch, the river wasn't just covering the rocks, it was fast-flowing, much deeper water with turbulence.
Later, when I headed out to the shops, I took a drive along the river to check it out.
This photo below was taken of a pretty, rocky section near my mom's place on 22 November 2015.
|A reasonably level in November - maybe 60 cumecs. It has been a lot lower since with rocks jutting out everywhere.|
And this is the same section today.
There has been a release from upstream at Barrage. This is about 90 cumecs coming down. There is also a lot of water hyacinth being washed down and I'm sure the Gatsien rapid is working perfectly. As this level rise is due to a release, it will drop when the release finishes. It's great to enjoy while it is here.
I enjoy watching the river and seeing how its personality changes with the water level. Another bonus of living in Parys.
