Police called us to let us know at Blanche Bar. Seems they may have jumped the gun, they did tweet it and now it's been removed.

Sure looks like its not going to muck around, be very small time period for some rain in the Pilbara. Was hoping it would pass a little slower and give us a decent dumping but not looking likely.

Our work crew SW of Onslow are getting a big downpour at the moment. Will be interesting to see how much rain the Western Pilbara get. I have a feeling they'll be stuck at camp a while over the next few days.

Yes lets hope the Pilbara get a good soaking ...
Just hope its not just isolated dumps but I have a feeling that's what going to happen .
Although its looking like its getting more condensed as it gets near the coast .
