Is 2020 going to be the year of storms or the new norm? Well having lived here for 22 years I have never so many damaging storms. In the photo above the power line in Von Solms took a direct hit from this falling black wood that must be 40 years old. The pole was smashed in pieces like a cheap set of chop sticks.
Last time the storm damage seemed confined to upper main road this time bottom of High Street and Von Solms seems to have been fairly in its sights. In the photo above cottage roof off and steel gate torn down indicating extremely local events.
Another big tree in main road down. The number of oak trees in the main road has been halved in the past two years. Power is only due back tomorrow some time if we are lucky.
