I am sorry to yet again report major flooding in many parts of our State, and into Northern New South Wales [photo courtesy Courier Mail]. It seems that Mother Nature is not amused, and feels the need to give someone a serve. At present the town of St George to the south west of us is watching and waiting. Most of the townsfolk were evacuated early in the week, and it seems they will not be allowed home for a number of days. The floodwater in these low lying floodplains takes days to arrive, stays up for days, and days to flow on down the system. The towns of Roma and Mitchell to the north [of St George] are now cleaning up from their share of the water. I feel sadness for these people. Thankfully, despite our river eventually becoming 'their river', we have not had the flow of water, as the rain fell in different catchments. We did, however, have an overnight fall in excess of 8 inches, which of course has now gone, and added to the woes further south west!!
I have not been stitching so much in the last week or so, as there is bookwork to be done, and I have been called upon at times to help outside [damaged fencing, straying cattle].
Thank you all for the lovely comments on our wedding photo. I do appreciate your continuing support. I am hoping to get back to some serious stitching tomorrow.
