Should you travel in the bush over the next few days, be aware that most, if not all watersheds (creeks, streams, rivers, lakes) are all full to overflowing, and there might even be water flowing where you least expect it. Always file a ‘flight plan’, letting someone know where you are going and when you expect to return.
