Some rain in SA yesterday and today. Not sure how much fell on the lake if any. Still plenty of time for anything to dry out.

There is a committee meeting on Monday night, I will have a report from those that attended after that.

Here's some touristy photos from Peter Noy #8 who was at the working bee. (Hope this is OK Peter?)

Pics look great, can almost hear the salt crunching underfoot

Just hope it ends up that way in a month or so again ,with the amount of rain forcast it may get a bit damp for a while

13 is good, look at Woomera , besides there more rain the evaporation for the last 10 days is 138mm
good steady falls over 2 days probably had very little run onto the lake

There are many other factors that play a part in evaporation and how it affects Lake Gairdner.

i see on the BOM site that Woomera had over 2", dose anyone know how much the northern areas of Gairdner had, :?: ,, may be a big puddle up there that the wind can bring down to the southern end, :twisted: ,,
