I think we've got enough water just on our roads to fill your reservoirs Ian (see picture below).

In our area, the ground water level is at the surface, & we live on the top of a huge hill!!! We have a septic tank system to our property, & the soakaway is barely working. Now that literally becomes a "shitty" problem if not rectified quickly. Luckily, our system has an underground tanked buffer storage of 30,000 litres (about 8,000USG) that I can deploy.

Good decision. When trees are dropping big branches or bows due to winter storm conditions, it's actually far more dangerous to be unprotected than when the trees are in leaf. The stuff coming down is often weakened/semi dead stuff and that crap falls off without sound or other notice. I hope all is well with the animals this morning.

Cold beans? = kinky ;)
