And still the drought is hurting us.

You would think that selling your farm, giving up the only life you have ever know – saying goodbye to farming to escape the drought would bring it all to an end.  It doesn’t.

Months have passed and we are yet to have sold our Versatile or Header, in fact over a year has passed since our clearing sale.

So we sit and wait, and wait. There has to be someone out there who needs them?

In our new location it had been over 5 months without rain.  Five months?  I can’t believe it.  I thought the earth had forgotten how to rain…..but then, this Anzac weekend, it rained.

Thank you for the rain!

53mm we got, FIFTY THREE millimeters!  Water is running everywhere, puddles up to my middle – are every where!

Here’s hoping you got the rain too.

Here’s hoping this damn drought is breaking, that the life of  the Aussie farmer returns to normal, that the heart break ends.

Here’s hoping that someone will now buy our machinery.

  1. Hi, I have just stumbled upon your blog. It brought me to tears, you write so eloquently about such a heartwrenching time. I wish you all the best. I too am on the land and relate to all you write. We have been feeding stock for 2 years, how much longer can this go on? I worry for the men. Its so unforgiving. Here’s hoping all is well with you.
