Weather - lots of it

Well, what has the weather been throwing at us.  Heavy rain over the weekend to cause flooding everywhere.  Severe storm yesterday.  Never known to have such strong winds in May.  Very occasionally these happen in late autumn.  Trees down everywhere, including by us, roads closed.  Yesterday the school children on the bus did not get home till 8 pm.  Electricity supplies off for 12 hours, so no mobile phone use.  Then this morning thunder and lightning and hail.  And of course another ash cloud!  But, it's calm now and became quite sunny this afternoon.  Damon and I have been busy chopping wood and clearing access.  Also clearing our chicken pen so that hopefully the predators can't get in.  We had moved the chicks from the front lawn to the side of the house, and fortunately they've survived the storm.  They were just annoyed at being left on the pebbles.

You can see where the big beech broke off
