Well I am certainly glad that seems to be over for now anyway, with 413mm falling since last Saturday. The forecast for summer doesn't sound good so we may well be in for a wet one. I was planning to be sitting back having a beer tonight and relaxing after the successful hosting of the Tweed Coast Open but now it's just to be glad we got all the fallen trees and limbs off the courses today and the clean up continues. The consistent inundation by tidal water is frustrating and I don't recall seeing it happen this often. There is still a lot of water to come down the river so we may have it happening for a few days yet especially with the tides at 1.8m for the next few days and more rain forecast.
A couple more photos of today's inundation below which are both worse than yesterday.

And now I am off on a weeks leave so the courses will be in the very capable hands of Assistant Simon and the crew.
