And the not so little..
It was a great relief last night to hear that after three days of clear tests, the "boil water" advisory had been lifted.
A thousand university students, unable to attend lectures because the university is closed, are out shoveling sand and silt from the worst affected properties.
A digger driver carefully lifted a treasured crystal chandelier from a business that he was about to demolish, and handed it to its owner held delicately in his digger bucket.
I'm off on a blogging break, and an actual break, somewhere where the worst that nature can do is drought, bush fire, floods, poisonous snakes, spiders and crocodiles. (The crocodiles are north of where we are headed, and the floods, which haven't made the news much here, given that we have our own problems, are south. So I think we'll be OK).
See you all in a couple of weeks or so.
