While I was off taking girls to Nelson for various activities yesterday a wind blew up at home. Noah and Sophie heard some big tree-ish noises and saw that some little branches had blown down.
What they didn't notice was that two 60-foot trees had toppled behind the carport, their tops narrowly missing Erin's cabin. It was dark when I got home and it seems I came careening around the corner of the cabin and ran over a bit of log that had flown off the top of the birch when it toppled. No damage done to either the cabin or the van, thankfully.
