Two nights ago the road works started at Site 55. This is one of the sites close to our house and adjoining our property.
The damage to Lamington National Park Rd caused by ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie is still being repaired. It has been 12 months since 400mm+ rain fell here in ‘Upper’ Cainbable.
It is now our turn to get ‘repaired’
Serious road works on Lamington National Park Rd(LNPR) are about to start. The road crews have started moving in and the speed limit on LNPR has been decreased – severely!
As part of our ongoing water security measures we had new water tanks installed at the shed-level last year.
5 x 2000 litre modular tanks were installed on the southern side of the shed. One of the only pieces of ‘flat land’ we own.
We completed our Fire Deck a few months ago, but still had some final touches to do to finish things off. We are almost there… but after the week we have just had we thought it was time to fire up the fire pit and see how everything works.
So we did 🙂
Heavy rain continued to fall through Thursday morning and we could hear and see water pouring down the mountain in lots of places.
We knew there would be more ‘damage’ to the road, and possibly to areas of our property too… so ventured out again when the rain eased.
We had good rain through the beginning of March, and in fact quite a bit more than average. By the end of the month we had had around 200mm, which is more than twice the monthly average.
This wasn’t all bad, as we had just moved our main water tank, and needed good rain to fill it.
