Mid-morning we became aware that a huge, old tree had 'fallen' victim to yesterday's snowstorm. You can only see a branch of it (from last summer) in the picture below in the upper left corner. That branch and its copious other smaller branches hung over the creek and the foot bridge. The picture below is the before....
The next picture below is the after....One portion of the trunk of this tree fell from the weight of the wet snow and has damaged the foot bridge (there are cracks in the stones and one side of it is wobbly), and struck the big stone wall on the other side of the creek, bringing a portion of it down.
Men have already begun to saw up the trunk to dry for firewood. Now the little bridge and the stone wall will have to be repaired. Good thing our neighbour is an amazing stone mason, built the wall originally, and offered to help us repair it!
I promise to find something else to post about soon!
