The Edward River is continuing to make its way towards 5.7m and the rain is still hanging around as we get closer to the Ute Muster.
The river is now high enough (5.24pm at 1pm 20/9/16) that you can no longer see the boat ramp, a large portion of stairs along the river and the end of the walkway at the Island Sanctuary will deliver you straight into water plus more.
The rain makes us wonder that if it continues on its merry way to Muster time, Does the Muster get dubbed something like ‘Musterstock’ or ‘Utestock’ because of the fact rain and music festivals/events with music seem to go hand in hand (Most Woodstocks for example).
76.4mm of rain has fallen in Deniliquin so far this month and a potential 40mm could fall in the next six days, The rain so far has seen the September 1998 record of 72mm broken.
This weeks rainfall will see the 400th millimetre of rain to fall this year which is massive when remembering that the yearly average to September is a grand total of 259.3mm.

There are so many more songs that have ‘Rain’ in the title, Blind Melon’s ‘No Rain‘ and Belinda Carlisle’s ‘Summer Rain‘ are two examples but with any luck some of the above may be perfect to unwind to.
Hopefully the rain will soon back off and people can enjoy a couple of days or weeks of beautiful spring weather because at the moment its nothing but a major dampener.
