Yep, right in the middle of harvest we had floods. Above, this looking up towards town. You can see my dad’s two trucks parked up on the left.
We were having our main road redone by the shire and they were only days away from putting down the bitumen, then along came the rain and washed it all away.
Below is my Uncle Mocka’s farm. We were heading towards the middle of his paddock where his gully was running, full of floodwater.
This was as close as we could get! Not good for the farmers who still had harvesting to do. It took weeks before they could even drive on their paddocks.
