We had a flood last weekend that blocked us off from civilisation for 24 hours. It was described as 'moderate' by the Bureau of Meteorology. It did however, do some damage to Plains Bridge which is above us. Apparently this has happened at each of the last five floods so residents above the bridge are 'not happy Jan'....(as we say in Oz).
The Shire Council say that they haven't the money to fix it permanently with concrete, but if you take into account the tons of gravel that they've used to make temporary fixes, and the labour and machinery, it bet that they've spend whatever it costs to fix it permanently already!
