It has been a very sobering couple of days particularly for us new expats who have never had to deal with such extremes of nature.
Earlier, my husband showed me aerial film footage of Marysville , which apart from the odd house has been pretty much wiped off the face of the earth. Absolutely obliterated. God bless the people affected and all who have perished...
Maybe we should all pray for rain over Victoria's worst affected areas...as they have been forecast only odd sprinklings in the short term?
