Today, in Katanning, much to everyone’s surprise: Nothing Happened!
It happened so suddenly, so unexpectedly, the entire population was taken completely unawares.
It will be a long long time before the residents of this little Great Southern town forget the non-events of this day. Many are still traumatised and are still gathered in small groups in the two remaining hotels to discuss the non event and to give support and reassurance to each other.
It certainly shows that our community spirit is not dead, and is clear evidence that adversity still brings out the best in us all.
Even so, for everyone’s sake, I can only hope that nothing not as devastating as this wasn’t, never happens again.
