Some might not call our recent storm an atrocity, but the weather was definitely atrocious. This morning I felt so grateful for dry paths, sunshine, and a breeze that was gentle. For those coping with sodden homes the fine day must have seemed surreal.
I hesitated to take my usual path through Latimer Square because I suspected it would still be muddy, and found it was blocked anyway. Part of the path was barricaded because a large branch had come down from a tree.
When I passed again in the afternoon a team from Treetech was busy munching up all the debris. I wish everyone’s mess from the storm could be as easily disposed of.
“If it was just one fallen tree
how easy cleaning up would be.”
