OK I know this is a gardening blog, - getting down off the soapbox now - OK I am off.... :)
This is what the sugar cane crop does when it gets pounded with lots of rain! It will pop back up again and recover, so not all is lost. Unfortunately the banana crop down south wont recover.
I feel so blessed that we did not suffer any damage and my thoughts and prayers are with those who have lost houses and property.
