However, our rain is nothing like that in Pakistan, India and China at the moment......the flooding is truly shocking and one cannot imagine what it must be like trying to survive in such circumstances.
My Mum ("GeeGee" aged 94 and still knitting) has just started another set of "Wrap With Love" squares to help!
Historical Note : In the great 1929 Launceston Flood, 337mm fell in the 24 hours to 9am on the 5th April and by the 7th April it had all arrived in Launceston. Coupled with rising tides and wind in the wrong direction, Invermay was innundated. But there was no Trevallyn Dam and no flood levees.
