So, I'm now chainsaw girl... cutting up trees and stockpiling the branches on a burnpile to deal with later. Here's some of the damage near our house.
|A small part of our driveway after the fallen trees have been pushed aside so we could use it.|
|This one is suspended on another tree, very close to our power lines. Team effort required here me thinks.|
|There are literally dozens of trees (some wider than a persons torso) that have literally snapped like this.|
|Thankfully the tree closest to the house fell away from the house. It was about 7m tall.|
|Most of the trees bought others down with them.|
|Alas my compost bins and recycling station was completely trashed by the same tree that took out my rose garden.|
But it's not all doom and gloom. Some of us are having a great time running up and down in the drains. Red dog + red mud = dirty house!
