Alpha is a very small Western community currently suffering through a period of severe drought as are many of our neighbours. Property Owners who have lived and worked in the area since the late 40’s all agree that this is the worst drought they have ever experienced.
As Alpha relies on the farmers to support our community and local businesses, it follows that when they have a good year, the whole town does. When the farming community suffer so does everyone else.
The lack of rain along with the ongoing uncertainty as to when it might rain has caused a lot of depression in town. Our farmers struggle daily with this concern, without resolution. They wake up in the morning and look out the window and see the dust bowls, their starving stock and no rain in sight. They pray for rain every day and must put on a brave face for their families and kids. There is no escape for them as they work, live and breathe their properties.
