We have spent the last couple of weeks getting ready for the impending floods. Everyone (well very nearly everyone) in our housing estate have done their part and pulled their weight.
The ladies have set up camp at the 6 liam sala (community area) at the end of our lake and they have put on breakfast, lunch and dinner for whoever wants it. There has been a great community feeling and we have been able to get a lot done.
The picture above is taken in my back yard. This shows what has been done to the back yard of most of the properties running down our side of the lake. The water is already behind this wall (about head height) so we have strengthened everyone’s walls to make sure the volume of water doesn’t force them in.
Let’s hope it’s enough to keep the water out…
