When it rains, it pours...

[Boolcunda Creek, between Quorn & Hawker, 4 Sept 2010]

We certainly have had some wild weather these past two days: Gale-force winds, thunder, lightning, and a heap of rain! Our area received more than 40mm in 12 hours Friday night, with another 15mm falling during the day Saturday.

Boolcunda Creek is one of 8 creeks/rivers that flow into the Willochra, the largest river in the Flinders Ranges. Most of the time these creeks/rivers are bone-dry, but if enough rain falls in a short period of time they begin to flow. They don't run for very long, but they make for an impressive sight when they do.
