Wild winds

Post by pop511 »

In Sydney, here in Aussie land, we have been spared the bush fires that have ravaged many parts of the country. So far over 3 million acres have burned and 600 homes gone. Today my power went out due to wild winds and my fencing got damaged. I was told that many trees had fallen near by and houses hit. So I went to look and take my camera. Both sites were within 3 minutes walk.

Impressive, like some of our spring storms which have worsened in the last decade. My house once suffered a tree just about like the last image collapsing it. Scary stuff. It is hard to protect ourselves from nature. Nice job of capturing the event.

There is a final ending to all this. While walking away from the house where the big tree fell. I noticed a guy carrying a large video camera. I jokingly said " You're too late I've got it all" OH YEAH!! Our national TV channel is the ABC. On their news, pictures of this house came up.
Oh Well...Better luck next time
Have fun!!!
