Here are some pictures from the floods we had ten days ago......Oh and i have decided the wild stallion and I, are going to the show, the other other horse can compete later in the season.
The top photo is of the road between my house and the nearest town, this is just after it opened, it was closed for two days as the water rushed right over, the poor farmer lost all his fences. This is usually beautiful flat paddocks full of cows....
All the gates on the farm, that we had to leave closed, got warped like this one. Note also the level of debris on the other gate, all from the flood water, This was one of the higher gates too, and was so warped, we had to use crowbars and sledge hammers to open it.
Let me repeat January and February are our DRIEST months!! We have already had two floods and more rain predicted for the weekend, and the temperature fluctuates between freezing cold, and scalding hot beach weather.
