photoblog image Splinters / spelks
Last night at 6ish Alison went to fetch her mum from the farm as they were on their way to Llanelli to collect her dad from hospital after going in for a new knee. BUT on the way up the drive a huge tree had blown down, blocking the main drive and the alterative route, so planZ, Alison comes back home to look after otto and lola while i go and get the chainsaw, generator, lights etc. When i get there I decided to cut the smaller section of the tree or the crown which means more cutting but lighter branches to move on my own. 1 Hour later i'm nearly through so as the van engine needs a rest (as i'm using the van headlights to illuminate, as my floodlights give up the ghost after 2 ticks) I then head for the house for a cup of builders tea (2 sugars). Then Eurig turns up and luckily he has a 5 tonne digger in his pocket!! then we show the tree where to go, and the driveway is cleared. I wish the picture was pulled back more as the crack in the stem was amazing, the splinters in the shot are about 600mm 2foot long. I recond it made a big noise when it came down, does anyone have other names or terms for splinters, please share? Splinters are usually bits of wood stuck in your hands/flesh.
