First storm of the winter November 22

A very wet October and that looks to continue during November.
The forecast today is for 50kph sustained winds with gusts of 100kph 😧 I don’t think we are actually getting that here, more like 40kph and perhaps gusts of 80kph. Still a strong gale.

As I’ve said before, its not just the wind which is a factor affecting how well Eucalyptus and for that matter all trees fare during storms, its also the moisture in the ground. One benefit of this years dry spring and summer is that the Eucalyptus will have been forced to grow their roots in search of hydration, so I’m hopeful they will be even more wind resilient this year.
