Hope the Panthers are still ok.
I don't think we city guys comprehend the problems this is causing.
Look forward to the scenery / greenery after the waters subside.
All the best!

The first comp in WA for the year has just been canceled due to a total fire ban announced for the area. Cant complain as I didn't fancy flying or judging in 40 degree temps.

I feel for you Scot, We went through the 74 floods in Wagga and having just moved from Sydney it was quite a culture shock and from what I see these are worse.
its going to take time so all the best to you and your friends.
