I wasn’t home. We weren’t allowed home for a few days. But we survived. We lost one hen (of two), a lot of trees, two sheds and their contents (including a year’s supply of cooking wood), and some plumbing, but we and the house are still here.
It’s slightly distracted me from blogging and reviewing, however.
I hope normal service will resume shortly.
The pictures below were taken from within a few metres of my house.
How the house is still standing I don’t know. We were very lucky – and fortunate indeed to be protected by many brave firefighters.
Having a bluestone house helped, but the roof was still vulnerable.
