That turned into a deluge of over a metre of rain over the last three days, wreaking havoc along nearly two thousand kilometres of our eastern coastline. Unbelievable. Power down, phones too. Internet now back on after three days and those who lost power and phones up here on the Range have just got those services back.
Apart from looking shredded and having a massive amount of leaf and branch debris lying around, we didn't fare too badly. All the infrastructure we have put in over the last couple of years, and the rebuilding of the house, was all worthwhile. We lost about a dozen large trees - but way down lower on the land. All safe around the house. We are blessed.
I walked around the acres yesterday, photographing the damage and came across this sawn tree trunk. I decided to post on it - the natural pattern contrasted with man made cuts - as I found it particularly beautiful in amidst all the mess around.
I couldn't decide which photos to post so I am including them all! Enjoy.
