Name a creek challenge
After the recent drenching, today there is wonderful sunshine and a great breeze for drying the washing. But after cheekily renaming Kelly Street, "Kelly Creek", yesterday and seeing so many Island roads becoming watercourses over the last few days, your editor began to muse, while acknowledging that some progress is being made, that many streets have been long term drainage nightmares. So to help keep road repair and drainage before Council's attention, perhaps we could start referring to the particularly riverine roads as, in fact, watercourses. How about Upjohn Anabranch or Mandalay Ponds for starters.
One correspondent, Barbara Gibbs, has already suggested Hideaway Delta.
So why don't we put our mouldiest thinking caps on and see what we can come up with and get a laugh out of the wet.
Over to you readers
