Gypsy wagon lying down.

Early this morning I was awakened by the wind and a crash. I had to get up and have a look. My premonitions were true – my son’s gypsy wagon project had blown over. Now he has to take much of it apart and repair what he can. He also has to reconsider some of the details such as height.

I was also worried about a very tall pole set up this summer for hops to grow on, but it held. I put on some extra ropes now to anchor it better. It too needs reconsideration and may get moved to a better place.

We get a lot of wind here. There seems to be a canyon-like flow through here to the valley below. I have been putting in a lot of trees and a hedge to diminish this effect, but it will take 20 years at least before we see much effect.
