We began the big clean up at work today after last weekend’s cyclone. If today is any indication, it would seem that we have the rest of this week and well into next, to look forward to, in order to clear the grounds of debris – which is mostly branches and fallen trees. We have created several large piles of green waste which I hope to have chipped and put back onto our gardens – nothing should go to waste out of this exercise.
We are looking at replacing the roof on our five wing Aged Care Hostel after finding it had at least thirty leaks in it, as well as the two large holes from skylights which were torn off during the storm. This should go a long way toward repairing the issues in that particular building. We have placed a tarp over the worst section of the roof (as well as the previous two tarps covering the ruined skylights). There were also three other buildings to date that had roof damage during the storm – that we know of thus far.
More debris to clear tomorrow with yet more piles of green waste to be chipped and returned to our gardens.
