|The end of the storm.|
|Our front gate.|
|Our great tree that welcomed people to our home.|
The storm took less than two minutes to pass, but the damage it did was incredible! Our saddest loss was that of two of our geese. Both our females were thrown about by the storm and died fairly quickly from injuries. Our gander was quite bereft.
Barely a tree was left unscathed in it's path. We lost one garage that was housing our unpacked things from the move. My car, the blue van was damaged.
There is going to be a lot of cleaning up to do!!! But there are many things to be glad about:
We were not outside!
|This was once a large pepper tree,|
probably 130 years old, with a large amount of
shade (and termites no doubt)
We have loads of wood for the coming years!
We finished our renovations to the termite damaged area (this storm would have knocked down the house, as it is we have now found more termite damage because of the storm).
We are insured. They have been called...and now we just have to wait for that to pan out.
We arrived home at midnight today instead of midnight tomorrow. Not knowing how it all happened would have been quite shocking!
We have WONDERFUL emergency services people. They were out within an hour clearing our roads.
|Emergency services clean up|
|Our beautiful home...Christian is near our gate.|
We are so grateful to God for His wonderful protection. When all the hooha had settled down, we gathered together in the lounge room and read Psalm 46:1-3
|Around our sheds.|
|Looking up to the back paddock.|
