The Murry will recover I have not a doubt of that. But i do think its time we saw the cotton industry in this country close its doors. We are a very rich country in many ways IF we sustain it properly. If we dont we could become a very "poor" land in many ways
We have a "Shack" on the River Murray. Not far upstream from Mannum for those who care.
Thought I would just show how we are going down here. It's eally starting to become dire! We need rain badly. Apparently we need six weeks of constant heavy rain to be out of drought. WOW!

When the Warrego River flooded Charleville a few weeks ago, the floodwater should have travelled down the Darling River and made appearence at Alexandrina.
Didn't happen. When the water travelled down into Nort West NSW, they didn't get the rain, their extraction pumps were running full time (called flood harvesting) and presto no more floodwater!. But as everyone said we will probalby have a bumper cotton crop.
But the Murry is sick-but not dying.
Hold on you guys down south, the rain will come. Nobody up here was expecting the amount of rain that has come.
