Queen’s Birthday Floods

Flooded farmland near the clubAs I’m sure everyone has heard, the weather wasn’t conducive to flying over the long weekend.  We had over 200mm of rain in only two days.  That’s more rain than we had in the last 6 months.  There’s a lot of new lakes around the area.  The airstrip is well above the flood level, so the only damage was from the storm water runoff, not from rising flood water.

Water in the fuel tank bundEric has been working hard shovelling the mud out of the clubhouse.  There was a distinct waterline around the skirting boards in the kitchen.  Only one of the bedroom carpets got some water on it.  One indication of the amount of rain is the depth of water in the bunded area around the fuel tank. You can measure it with a ruler.Main Hangar

The gliders are all OK.  All of the hangars have had some storm water seep in so the floors are a bit damp.  There are a few leaks in the roof that have dripped onto gliders and need some attention.
