Summer in Mole Creek

Last Friday we had yet more rain, another 190mm (that’s almost 8 inches in the old scale!) in a 24 hour period, on top of the 130mm we had in December and there was flooding in town. I did not see it in person but saw pictures of water in the streets and on the pub verandah.  There was no way in or out of Mole Creek at the time as our bridge was closed over the Mersey river, and the other access roads were flooded and closed as well.  I was impressed by the speed with which the bridge was repaired as it was re-opened lunchtime the next day.
Our property coped quite well, we just had to move pigs around to avoid the flooded paddocks.  I guess this just gave us the tiniest little experience of the much larger problems they are having in the Eastern mainland states.
