Flood Photos

The main road between Wagga and Coolamon was blocked and traffic stopped until the water stopped running. The school buses had a hard time getting home. The farmer who owns this land said it had been 30 years since he'd seen this much water rush through his property.

We went to check out one of our other farms but couldn't get there because of the flooding. These photos are taken on the neighbours land at the back of our farm.

Farmer Phil, Emma and Ryan checking out a fence that has broken and washed across the road and piled with straw. Farmers will be fencing for the next month!

The gate didn't stand a chance against the force of the flood water.

hello , i have come across your blog and wanted you to know how disheartening it is to see the photos of the damage of all the farm land ..... most of all because of all the extra work it brings upon the farmer .... my hubby and i are not farmers by trade howevr we do busines with and for the local farmer in a town 10 miles south of us .... we sell produce organic eggs and chickens for them during our growing season here in the northeastpart of Pennsylvania in the U.S.A...... although as i said the rain looks as it did a # of ruins has it gotten any better ?? here in our part of pennsylvania we are dealing with blizzard conditions and snow that has not stopped in over 24 hours .... it really is unbelievable to see this much snow some parts of our state have 49inches we have 20inches .... oh dear what a mess looks as if no matter where we live there is always a weather problem to deal with ..... well good things will come our way soon !
