Heavy rain – falling ,

torrents rage, rivers fill – flood

dog needs walk – folly.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. I followed this by doing a Master of Arts by research graduating in 2017. Now I live to write and write to live.

    • This is a few years ago and they are currently suffering from drought which will inevitably end with flood. You probably wouldn’t find it cold enough (although that is why we moved too cold) and you would certainly find it too hot (which is why we don’t find our tropical paradise hot.)

    Wonderful, Irene! A slightly depressing but nevertheless excellent range of shots of NSW flooding. Now, if only those times would come back – to a degree!!!

    These photos could be here in the UK, especially where I live in Somerset, with all the flooding! I am in touch with my friends in California and they are having a severe drought there right now, not a raincloud in sight.

    Wow! I don’t do well in floods despite the fact that I used to swim whenever I had the chance. After the basement flooded, I never wanted it to rain again.
