FLOOD PEAK: Jasmine Knight-Smith and daughter Lucy watch the river rise in Lismore last week.

Contemplating the pelting rain

JASMINE Knight-Smith of Lismore sent this photo of her daughter Lucy last week at the river just before the peak.

"I've lived in Lismore for about 26 years and always loved floods. People rally together and there is a feeling of cleansing," she said.

"There is always a sadness, like the dozens of broken near-hatching eggs under the Ballina St bridge and posts covered in arachnids and insects in the only high ground available," she said.

"I'm always mindful of the headache for those who have to clean up and the possibility of loss of life; human (God forbid) and otherwise."
