30 Jan A tree fell on my studio
It had been a very hot and windy day with storms on the change of wind. Just before 6pm we heard a loud crash and went outside to see a large tree broken at its base and leaning in the branches of another. Two trees crashed down onto the studio roof. Fortunately the main structure of the studio was strong enough and only the car port roof was destroyed.
Now for the clean up and re-build.
Just minutes after the trees fell, lightning hit a tree on the edge of the forest a few hundred metres from our house. The wind had dropped and the local fire brigades were able to stop the fire spreading and put it out.
