Last Friday Mr FH and I decided to take a drive. We had heard that the farmers east of us were far worse off than us with the drought so we thought we'd take a look. The town is surround by salt lakes which at this time of the year are usually filled with water.
As you can see there isn't much water this year. Some of the crops were ruined but there were others which were still hanging on and quite good -ours are about in the middle of that!!
This really shows the harsh Australian landscape at it's best. By the end of summer the wind will have blown all this precious soil away. We ended up driving over 200km!
