Flood in Northern Rivers
The Wilson River has risen 10 metres in 24 hours ... and then the paddocks get a bit soggy (see above).
The towns of Lismore and Grafton are being evacuated, and more than 20,000 homes are without power. Not us here at 308, though... we're here on our eyrie farm high above the valley and luckily the power stayed on despite the numerous trees that fell due to the high winds.
