Mother Nature vs the fences

Mother Nature is a tough lady and I'm sure you can guess who won.








Last week a violent spring storm blew through.  We had about 6 big trees blown over taking the fences with them.



One Willow tree managed to land on a gate and break the post the gate was hung on.



Combined with the branches of other trees that were snapped off we have a lot to clean up, but on the bright side we won't be running out of firewood any time soon.
