What a world we live in

Here I sit on reasonable sunny morning having my cuppa and reading about the floods in New South Wales and Victoria etc... Geez it was only a couple of months ago that I was up that way visiting family and friends and thinking how much greener it was looking after years of drought. (These days I travel by train through these states so get to see a bit of the country side.)

Now, from what I can gather from the news reports:,_Australia_affected_by_flooding?dpl_id=226323

it seems to be going so much greener in these parts of this great big country of ours.

Makes you wonder how the farmers just keep going  when it becomes so wet. Its either a feast or a famine with them. When I was last up that way, the crops were looking so good and here I was thinking that they were going to have a wonderful year, how wrong I was. Well, after growing up as a farmers daughter, I should of known so much better. You can have years of drought, then get downpours in summer and end up still wearing gumboots to get around. But they, the farmers, just keep getting on with it. Its a way of life for them as well as a business. Its there homes, and I dont mean just a house, that is affected by the constant changing weather..and people in the cities and larger towns say they should just get on with it.. hey you try it and see your hard work and money go down the drain. It can be heartbreaking to se0 e all that effort end up lost for another 10 years.

After 10 years of drought, it can take another 10 years to catch up and start making money again.
