What a crazy day. Andrew those pics of the gum trees down is exactly what a lot of our farm looks like. We have measured constant 50knots with gusts to 64knots the entire day and last night. Power only just came on after going off last night. Been out with the chainsaw for most of today. As the ground became saturated more and more trees down. A real PITA to clean things up but it could always be worse and we were lucky compared to others. Astan and his family farm have suffered a lot of damage today.
Watching all this wind over the last couple days has been frustrating. We just wanted to go ds'ing but the rain never stopped until about 20minutes before dark tonight. We could have surely taken AVB's Pintrees record.
I feel like the worst of this system has passed us now, as it is blowing a lazy 40-53knots now. I bet it drops right off by morning.
