It has been raining....allot. There has been so much rain that many areas are suffering severe flooding and it is to continue for a few more days. What hardship for all those families that have had their homes destroyed especially coming up to Christmas. I know if my washing machine leaks the mess it can make so the clean up required after flood damage is mammoth and many affected, had only recovered/replaced or rebuilt after the 2009 floods. My heart goes out to all affected by this weather event.
