Driving rain in Childers
WHAT a week of rain we have endured.
Last Friday night, driving home from the Childers Twilight Market, the rain hit when I was north of Isis Mill turn-off.
I slowed down to 40kmh, the driving rain was so hard I had to pull over three times; I wasn’t able to see the red reflectors on the side of the road. The normal 45-minute trip on any other day was extended to 70 minutes.
The wind and rain tested my car, the Bruce Hwy was at a standstill and only the brave moved on.
Trucks had pulled off the road and cars had parked in rest stops. The Twilight Market had a small turn out, possibly due to the weather forecast predicted.
I would like to thank all the team at the Childers Pistol and Rifle Club.
It was great to visit your club and I would like to apologise for the two missed shots at the indoor range.
I am happy to putty-up my damage. I guess all great sportsmen start somewhere and I know a left-hander can’t use a right-handed air pistol.
Headlining news is Mayor Mal Forman is calling it quits; the community has taken to social media to thank Cr Forman for all he has done over the past 14 years.
Now that he is stepping down the race is on to fill the seat.
Who will be our region’s next mayor?
Let us know at Town and Country your prediction for the coming elections.
Have a great week Childers and stay safe on the roads.
Remember the SES is currently on standby and ready to help in any emergency.
