Nor'west Eyre

The Eyre river flows underground for most of the year, except when there is heavy rain in the catchment. Then the river fills its shingle bed, carries debris down stream and wipes out the numerous fords (not me!) that cross the river. Here, a few days after such an occurrence the water has subsided and trickles placidly beneath a Nor'west cloud arch. Tomorrow it will snow.
