This shot was taken in Commonage Rd, outside Simmo’s Icecream. Our neighbour was driving along here at the height of the storm. He said this section looked frightening with the wind blowing trees everywhere. He decided to pull over (the wind was so strong he faced the car into the wind in case it blew the car over!). While he watched 3 trees were blown down over the section of road he had been about to drive down. This photo was taken about an hour later. We had to deviate through Simmo’s carpark to get into Dunsborough.
I went out to Sugarloaf Rocks yesterday. The wind was gusting around 40 knots and there was spray everywhere. I had my camera well covered because of the salt spray everywhere.
I think the seas will continue to increase during the week, and I will probably go out again around Wednesday or Thursday. (The forecast is for wind gusts up to 125km/hour tonight – after Sundays storm that is really only a gentle breeze!
