Topic tags/keywords: england storms free lumber

I couldn’t help but think of our buddy YorkshireStewart over there on the North coast in England, when I saw these images on the internet of the great storm that is raging over there right now.

And then this one made me think that ole Stewart with his chainsaw could be busy gathering some great “windfalls.”

Just don’t let this happen to you, Stewart ;^D

We’ll be praying for you over there!

I think that is him! Looks like his umbrella anyhow! And those black dots aren’t sand, they’re wood screws!

Hello Gentlejocks. I’m still here. Just spotted this post. Great pictures Tom. Thanks for thinking of me.

Woodscrews! That’s funny Dadoo

Strangely enough, we spent all of last week in the south-west where the weather is at its worst. When my wife booked the cottage for the first week in March I’d suggested the second week might be better weather. Am I glad I didn’t put on any pressure to change the booking!! Up here in the north-east it’s been rough but not that rough.

Ah Stewart, you could have come down under where the weather is nice and warm. Good to see all is OK.

Hey Stewart, glad all is well. I look forward to some new turnings with the windfall wood I expect you will reap.

Wow; That’s some serious waves. That must have been a heck of a storm. I hope the guy managed to keep his umbrella.

I live about 100 miles north of Stewart. There was some windfall timber when I was out driving on Saturday, and the wind has strengthened since then, so we should have plenty to choose from. I’m just hoping the trees that overshadow my workshop are going to stay upright, otherwise the wind may deliver the free timber right to the workshop roof!

Hope you get some nice wood too, only not delivered to your rooftop (or through it…yikes ;^D ). I didn’t realize that you were over there with Stewart. Be careful!

I’m glad that all your report seems good. But, it looks like some wild storm.

And a Mighty wind blew across the land… read that somewhere. Wow! What a great group of phots. You guys sure to be on the look out for downed power lines while out reaping the timber harvest. Take Care. Greg
