third largest flood in living memory

We had a doozy of a flood in late February, the 21st probably being when it peaked in the early hours of the morning. A local who's been here for many years says it's the third largest in living memory. 1950 was the biggest, followed by 2001 and now 2013. This is the view from my verandah on the morning of 22 February as the waters had gone down a bit:

And here's that photo again of the river at normal height and the tree to the right that can also be seen in the photo above:
