We've been having some pretty wild and windy weather lately.
En route to my shopping yesterday I came across a huge tree that had fallen half across the road. Luckily I managed to squeeze through, but it was still there when I returned an hour later. Usually such things are dealt with very quickly. I expect it had gone by lunchtime.
Later, Lady M called me to look at some damage nearer to home. 'Dangerous Fun' had totally collapsed. Over the years, the trees have grown and the structure has been pulled apart; the strong wind did the rest. It's been there since 2013, so it's served us well. It'll serve us again now as firewood, unless I can find some other use for what's left.
Such is life!
Just as well no-one was playing on it at the time.ReplyDelete
We were having gale force winds, and it was night-time; no chance!Delete
Mother Nature has her way as usual.ReplyDelete
The tree was telling me to leave her alone!Delete
AHH I'm sure you'll be thinking up more dangerous fun. You've got two little imps there that are just itching for mischief I bet.ReplyDelete
We have another HUGE Oak tree that is perfect for climbing. I may install a series of ladders (with parental approval, of course).Delete
You could rebuild it? Unsuitable for burning, it's not treated pine is it?ReplyDelete
I don't think it's re-buildable, and you're right, the wood isn't really suitable to burn indoors, but it would be fine for our outdoor 'fire pit'.Delete
All good things come to an end.ReplyDelete
They had a lot of fun with it, while it lasted.Delete
That's a bit sad though, a sign of time passing by and things changing.ReplyDelete
The children are all more interested in BBQ's and the fire pit these days. Anything with flames!Delete
It has been a windy year here also. For the past six months we have been listening to the hammering of roofers putting on new roofs in my area (including mine).ReplyDelete
Luckily no roof problems here (which makes a change), but plenty of trees down and small dead branches all over the roads. We're used to it now.Delete
