After the storm

There is still a very strong wind blowing here and I am being careful just what trees I am walking under.  Things seem to be falling from the sky all the time.  The other disturbing thing is that many large fish are drowning.  That sounds stupid but the amount of soil being washed down the rivers is so thick in the water that the fish are drowning.  We are taking bets between each other about how long it will be before the water is clear again.  My husband has his money on August I think May but if we have another big storm it could be even longer.  Still, it is school holidays and there are lots of people out fishing.  I don't think they are catching anything.

The electricity suppliers sent their trucks over to the island this week to clear trees  away from the power lines.  After the storm.  Would have been better before the storm I think.  Anyway, it was interesting to watch them get that long arm up into the trees.  Some of the trees are just way too tall and my heart was in my mouth a few times as that rotary saw spun near the power lines.

Looking up, lovely blue sky, through the trees, brown sea.  There is some interesting moulds grown on the tree bark as well.

Going over to the mainland I noticed that the channel markers don't mark the channels any more.  Oh boy, that is going to be a big job for someone.  All the maps are going to have to be re-drawn.

The clean up always takes longer than whatever provoked it, doesn't it!

This one is long and messy.
