Card­well des­per­ate to re- en­er­gise bat­ter­ies

Townsville Bulletin - - News -

PRINCE Wil­liam would be well ad­vised to pack his gum­boots for Satur­day’s visit to Card­well. Newsagent Richard Do­ran mea­sured 70mm of rain be­tween 6am and 10am yes­ter­day. The rain was re­lent­less through­out the af­ter­noon and barely paused for breath all day. Card­well is six weeks out from the Fe­bru­ary 2-3 cy­clone, but with the houses still ‘‘ tarped’’ and the wrecked ones with the shat­tered walls and miss­ing roofs still ly­ing there like rot­ting car­casses in a pad­dock wait­ing for the crows and hawks to pick bare, the town, for all in­tents and pur­poses, might have only been through a cy­clone just a few days ago.

The drench­ing rain and the grey­ness of the sky does noth­ing to sup­press an all-per­vad­ing at­mos­phere of lethargy.

Card­well needs some sun to re-en­er­gise its bat­ter­ies.
