Cyclone Debbie

It’s been a while since our last blog as we have been busy cleaning up after Cyclone Debbie. Whilst we ere high and dry (and safe) there were those around us who did not fair so well! The cyclone hit South Murwillumbah badly and the aftermath was heartbreaking. I don’t think people who live in cities realize how well insulated they are by government and recovery bodies but here in the Northern Rivers it was community and bare hands digging cars out from under houses inundated by swamp grasses from the tidal creeks before the smells of decay begins that you realize just how isolated you are! I have not included photos of other peoples heartache as that would be ghoulish but I have put photo’s of our beautiful creek, which for a few hours became a monster, now we move forward and rebuild.
