that all my tomatoes got broken down to just tiny stalks and that my bean pyramid looked fine, but then I realised that the wind had lifted it and it was in another veggie bed from where it was planted so it would die. In my dream I was so upset. So when I woke up I was scared to look out the window! After the edge of the cyclone hit (It still remains a category 2) I was sure the place would be trashed.
However, this morning has dawned dry with blue skies. It's still a bit breezy, but it's almost unbelievable to think that yesterday we were being hit by a cyclone. Further east from us got hit worse as Wilma was tracking down the coast - so our friends at the beach had 300mm of rain, we had 120mm ish. Their driveway has, quite literally, been washed away, which is terrible. And a lot of people were evacuated last night, so we got off very lightly.
I got up at 7 this morning and walked around checking on the animals, the veggies and the garden. Still got to look round the farm.
But the good news ~ everything is fine.
The beans hadn't been lifted right out by the wind, and my tomatoes were still firmly in place, looking non the worse for being hit by 150km winds. ( Tomato cages rock!)
The silly chooks, who went to roost up their tree, even though I had shut them in their lovely dry house, weren't even wet this morning and all ate a hearty breakfast.
I'm very glad it's over though.
Thanks to everyone who was wishing us well, yesterday, you're all lovely.
