Windy Weather not Merewether

As the days start to lengthen, so too does the wind strengthen

As I write this the wind has turned from fresh southerly to strong dry westerly, and it is bending the bamboo. The backyard fills with a tangle of sticks and dead branches after storms, so makes for another thick layer on the compost heap.

Yesterday morning woke to find a large eucalypt leaning against the next door property - it had gently lurched over a few metres with no visible damage except a dented gutter and downpipe. All night the winds had buffeted our homes, but didn't really hear anything that would suggest a tree falling over. Before I had time to take an image the aborists had come and dismantled the tree to a pile of firewood.
Now for the hard part, lugging the wood away from the house into the bush where it can rot. Made a nice flat area for the chickens and the girls to stretch their wings and legs.
