Here is our brand new trampoline, that was blown down the paddock by the cyclonic winds, and cleaned by the torrential rain.
My son said he was glad he wasn't jumping on it when it took off. As am I.
We were flooded in for four days, and besides the lack of milk and bread, no power, mobile phone or landline, and the faint whiff of cabin fever setting in, we did okay.
We still have many small towns cut off by floodwaters, and my heart breaks for them. So many places flooded, lots of animals lost, rural communities beginning another clean up and regroup.
It will be done. They breed 'em tough out here in the country.
Get up, dust themselves off and start again.
There's no other choice.
