April 12th, 2019

April 12th, 2019  
@ludwigsdiana Getting pretty darned bad, even by local standards.

@onewing GOK. Less than 25mm this year.

@gilbertwood Yep, the southwestern Riverina can be very unforgiving.

@yaorenliu Very much so Yao.

This image says volumes!

@jgpittenger It certainly is Jane, this is a very bad drought, and hard on the heels of the protracted millenium drought. Sending plenty to the wall.

@salza It is strangely beautiful in a sort of a way that resonates with me Sally. Better not quite as dry as this though.

@robz Yep!!

@taffy @robz Average rainfall is somewhere around 11 - 12" but is, even at best, highly variable. Which is why the farms are big, very big, or very, very big (not by real outback standards!). Some irrigation is vital, and usually possible though with water now a market-driven commodity, the price at times like this is prohibitive, and sometimes not any available. Water politics here is extraordinarily complicated thanks to the division of powers between states and federal governments. Leroy has some water but has invested in some very expensive high-tech equipment to optimise the outcomes of using it.

Hope you get really good rains very soon!!
