Perfect one day, winter the next



WILD and woolly weather has swept through the Northern Rivers in the past two days. We went from perfect summer one day to winter the next.

Strong winds brought down trees, some gardens enjoyed a reasonable soaking, and many people spent time under the doona watching DVDs.
