We can cope with the snow ok here it’s the wind that causes all the bother. 70 plus mph winds on Friday night not great. There’s only a few inches of snow but the stower has been unbelievable
Don't mind either snow or wind.problem for us was the wind came from the north/east.so hit all the trees on the weak side with the shallow roots.got a few wind blown plantations now, just a mess.

Same here. The plantation in the photo is a mess with trees down will have to be felled now the wind is into it now next lot will take a lot more out. I wasn’t in a rush to fell it yet

I think thats what the trouble has been, its come from an angle it hardly ever does,right out of north, not with that strength anyways
How i know is because all the cobwebs have blown out of the airvents in my northfacing bathroom wall into the bathroom, med a right mess😂, been here 20 yr and its never done that before, so figured wind musta been out of a rare direction with that force.
Havnt had it as bad as @livestock 1 here....just blew mi a few cobwebs in😂

Yeah, the bu66ers that have blown down aren't sequesting much carbon now are they?

I'm guessing not too many grass fields have blown away.
4” of grass cover over the whole farm has gone black and disappeared. Neighbour was heading out on the lawn mower this morning as his grass was very tall on Thursday, lowest setting wouldn’t cut it today after the storm yesterday.

Not as bad as your snow but wish I’d packed yesterday afternoon before all the pins froze!
