HOW-TO: CREEK CROSSINGS
Late last year, every meteorological expert under the sun was banging on about El Nino and the super-hot and dry weather patterns it was set to create over Xmas and into early 2024. Well, something went tits-up with their weather modelling because, as most people on Australia’s entire eastern seaboard would now know, it’s been one of the wettest few months on record.
