Shoalhaven Snippets

A quick 8 hours in June 1891
Floods in the area covered many roads and bridges. The coach trip
from Nowra to Milton, usually taking a quick 8 hours, took 53 hours.

Jervis Bay Items. 1915

With Christmas so close and the rain bucketing down accompanied by severe lightning and loud thunder I came across this small article from 100 years ago.
I hope our holiday makers have a better time of it this year.
