Remember hearing station owners from the Gulf looking for government assistance, back in mid 2000s. They'd been flooded for months on end, and it killed the grass seed so nothing grew back after the water receded. The government in its wisdom saw they'd had all that water, couldn't wrap their heads around that properties had no feed after all that water, and refused assistance for a long time.

Makes you wonder what may lay ahead. 665mm so far this month (to 9 am today) and 785mm last month. Well above the long term average .

So it seems my dying lawn and smell may be due to the dreaded Army worm according to the Cairns post. Alot of lawns around Cairns are infected and the post is recommending residents use pesticides to get rid of them! Won't be happening to my lawn; it will recover.

The Ross River dam gates were opened just before 4 pm today!

Yip-y-aye-yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS Don't know if anyone is on Forest Road at Bluewater, there are reports of SES and Swift Water Rescue going door to door. The flooding is humungeous. Check this out: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-01-30/north-queensland-flash-flooding/10763122

We have friends in a low set house on that road but don't know how they are faring.

Keep safe!

Old bloke told me to cover the patch with plastic for a day, then take it off and pick them up. Apparently they come to the surface.

I reckon Pyrethrum could be the go as can work fairly quickly so may be possible to give it a try if it looks like a break in the rain.
