Big Wind!

We had a big wind storm the other night.  Bella was so frightened she tried to jump into HER bubble bath!
Bella, who doesn't mind fireworks or thunder, hates wind.

We only had sticks and leaves blown around our garden.
But when we got to the river in the morning, there were tree branches down.
These pictures are from this morning....SHE forgot the camera yesterday.

We were first there, and SHE removed the more manageable  branches from the track.
 We had to inspect them.
 The track goes in a loop.  This is at the fork in the track.
 Once we got past these branches, the track was clear until we got back to this point.

Thanks for the POTP for our friends in the Adelaide Hills.  They have posted about their experience.  You can read it here.


  1. Boy guys we had bad winds here too and I am suprised we lost no trees and just as surprised we had no fire..rotten day here..i bet those trees had some great sniffs..possums and sugar glider sniffs :)...the boys love sniffing the downed trees here :) stay safe and huge hugs Fozziemum xx

  2. Poor Bella being scared, I hate the howling wind too.
    I hope all our friends Down Under,
    people, pets, wildlife and homes stay safe.

  3. Big old gum trees do love to snap their branches - especially the big old river red gums which Mom remembers being called widow makers.

    1. Yep still called widow unpredictable! fall on a quiet warning guys! xx

  4. Oh we are not fond of big wind here! SHE will know what my means when we say there are way tooooo many tall skinny pine trees in Nc and Va

  6. The great philosopher, Yogi Berra, said "When you come to a fork in the road, take it"..

  7. We had a windstorm on Christmas and lost a big tree out front. Glad you are safe.

  8. OMD we are glad that you didn't have damage at HOME... and that poor Bella was so frightened... We are not fans of WIND either...
    We have our PAWS CROSSED TIGHTLY fur our furends in the line of REAL FIRE... We know it is very dangerous at this time of year...
    Praying fur RAIN for them..

  9. It is most annoying when branches block one's favourite path, is it not?

  10. Mackey is afraid of wind too. She's afraid of any big noise. We would have helped move those branches, we're good at that.

  11. I HATE da winds. I only feel safe inside mom's shower!!


  12. Bella, sorry the wind made you scared. I know how you feel thunder scares me.

  15. Poor Bella ...... I hate wind too. Noises don't worry me either but WIND ..... OMD!! I HATE it. Doesn't scare the snot out of me like it does Susie though. Mum laughed out loud when she read that comment. She now has this mental picture of Susie with all this stuff running out of her schnoz.. too funny, aye???
    Must have been some wind you had down there.

    Your Pals,

  20. I am glad you are all safe and sound. Those looked to be some pretty interesting sticks.

    Loveys Sasha

  21. Eekk...I can see why they are called widow makers! The wind causes so much damage. We can totally understand why Bella was scared.

  22. Oh my! Looks like a lot of fun though having to inspect all those branches. Bet you guys had fun.
