I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
from My Country by Dorothea Mackellar
Could you please pray for us today as we sandbag our peaceful town.
The river is currently at 7.9m, and is expected to peak at 8.3m later this morning. The High Street is already under water.
Our home should be safe for the moment, but the property we supply fully furnished to one of our senior staff members is expected to be flooded soon, as the waters continue to rise. It is currently 10cm below floor level. We will be moving as much as we can from there this morning.
