    1. we are well insured just have to wait for the system - lots of damage around the area and house take priority over barns which is understandable.

  2. Oh dear - ditto about insurance. Is that one of the trees that was due to come down - looks quite a mess to say the least.

  3. Oh dear that's no good. That happened to me last year. Lucky the tree was on council property and they paid for shed and fence to be fixed

  4. Well, at least your house was spared and every one in it and you won't have to live in a tent while things are made shipshape again. But what a mess to clean up in the meantime.

  5. Oh dear, those must have been really strong winds. I'm glad no one was hurt and hope the damages will be taken care of soon.

    1. LOL yes one way to get firewood lol. It broke Gus and Geraldine's shelter. We were rather worried about the geese as they were so quite when we were out with a torch looking at the damage - the poor things were huddled over by the chicken coop but thankfully safe

  7. You are so fortunate that it isn't your house! What a scare this must have been.

  8. Oh No, hope the men were outside, and you are all safe, I can imagine the noise, as when one smaller tree accidentally fell the wrong way and landed on our small woodshed, noise was frightening. One good thing, your men are so resourceful. We fared a lot better, no trees down, no plants demolished, just internet down for 3 days, and a new modem installed today. Now for catch-up time. Take care, Jean.

    1. yes Brent is resourceful and has been able to remove the tree and weather proof barn enabling us to jump the que of a clean up. I'd hate to wait for insurance to do the clean up.

  9. Hi Leanne, wow it has been a 'tad' windy!! We had a dreadfully windy night here (Vic, Aust), and I did have one tree - much smaller than yours - snap in half on my neighbour's side of the fence (thank goodness it fell into his backyard, not across the fence into mine), but nothing like that!! I hope all can be put to rights fairly quickly and you will not be hugely out of pocket in expenses. Hope everyone and any pets were all safe. Take care

  11. Gosh Leanne, such a lot of damage. Hope you are all ok tonight, the wind has whipped up again. Certainly it is rather blowy here in Wellington.
