Perhaps some readers will find this mini-photo diary of recent extreme weather events worth pondering. The images are from the days after the first flood, during the second flood, and the results of the second flood. The images also enlarge somewhat.
The second flood was not as devastating as the first as the steam beds had already cleaned themselves during the “big” flood. Water was able to flow freely without too many back ups yet still carried mostly small stones (as opposed to boulders and trees), gravel and the plastic bags that the water missed the first time.
The aid money promised by the government has not arrived yet.
