How's everyone else faring?
Just got our power back on - been off since Wednesday lunchtime - and blowing hard again now!
Wednesday afternoon was horrendous. I went down to the end of the road at 4.00pm to pick up my daughters from the school bus. Took me less than five minutes to get there, and more than 2 hours to get home!!!! Luckily had chainsaw in the back of the landrover and was able to cut my way through, but more was falling all the time, in front and behind. Had a few narrow escapes, a bit of damage to vehicle, but got home in the end. Kids pretty scared.
Spent all day Thursday with the tractor clearing fallen timber and trying to make our access safe. Most roads open again now too.
Like 1987 all over again!!!
