I thought you may like to see what happens to a stream in a gully that turns into a raging torrent when you get a lot of water in a short time. Keep in mind that this causeway had recently been improved and reinforced.
This particular causeway and a wooden bridge just 100 metres downstream of it effectively cut this town in two, with most of the residents on one side and the Country Club - the only drinking hole within 25kms radius - on the other side. That's it, the building you see, in the background. Now that's serious out here!
