    @@ plipin close call on the way home tonight.@@

    Just getting back on our feet and i was hit by a large falling branch all covered in ivy.

    the bad news is the car has been deemed unsafe to drive on the road.........................and as my car is in the garage this ones the wifes ?

    just south of work heading home after a family shoot this happened.

    Attachment 36211Attachment 36212Attachment 36213Attachment 36214Attachment 36215Attachment 36216


    hit the tree branch with a right bang had to stay on this side of the road as there was an arctic and some other cars coming the other way on a country road (a343) what a bang this was ripped of the front of the headlight, the window wiper the door mirror and some of the scratches all along the side of the car and the roof, bonnet and wing are damaged and im not su how far that bit of branch goes into the front of the car, its done something to the headlight controls as both headlights are pointing to the road and will not adjust with the adjuster, of course the nearside headlight doesn't work at all nor does the indicator.

    ah well never mind its just the wifes car.



    and when you see her tell her im sorry, im off out, bob.

    Bad news Bob, I saw that tree as I came home, the funny thing was the highways dept where clearing up another tree about a mile back on the same road by the crux turning.
    pity they didn't sort that one to.

    we have about a dozen mature trees down in ore woods over the last three storms, country wide there must be a vast amount down.

    keep safe mate.

    She's not going to be happy Bob, and even less so when you explain that had you been in the old Vitara with the bull bar it would be damage free

    just a bit shaken, no matter how good a driver you are when these things just drop out the sky/off the side of the road etc there is nothing you can do about it.

    it was just the loudness of the bang and then i could not see a thingfor a few seconds and i ground to a holt.
