You saw these pics in the Southern hemisphere farming thread but for everyone else, this was my day. Woke up to a ferocious storm Then went and surveyed the damage, had to clear some branches off fences and irrigation lines and checked cattle. If you look carefully in this photo you can see a JD tractor and pto pump hiding behind a pile of fallen limbs, we were blessed it didn't get flattened. Some of those limbs are 18-20" through, snapped like pencils. Two of my neighbours had pivot irrigators blow over, and about 2000 residences were without power for most of the day. We got about 11mm out of it so that makes for a change from what has been the norm here this year. Since I had no power and couldn't do office work I went and looked at a trailed Horwood Bagshaw header that's for sale locally and then went into town. Then cause the power was coming on and off the alarm at our fire brigade kept going off so I had to reset that. By then it was time to get the girls to bed and have a romantic Valentine's dinner with my wife.
