Our local correspondent brings us the latest news from the Wowan Dululu district
by Donna Reynolds
WHAT A week it has been on the weather front.
Storms all around, parts of the Pheasant Creek area last week recorded some good rainfalls, filling gullies, how envious we all are.
Some areas just around Wowan township received fair downpour.
But overall, very minimum rainfalls were received throughout the district. The winds have been blowing up a storm and then the wind blows it all away.
Hope there is some relief from this current heatwave we have been experiencing!
