Molongolo in spate

river in spate, originally uploaded by moncur_d.

went down to Coppins Crossing yesterday and the Molongolo, normally a fairly placid creek, was dramatically in spate after all the rain we've had in the past week or so.

The bridge was closed to traffic, and there was a lot of debris heaped against it on the upstream side, but it was possible to splash across the bridge for a look.

Judging by the strand line debris on the banks the river must have been close to a meter over the bridge at the height of the flood ...
