While Launceston went under….. Providence just got soggy

So many places down the east coast of Australia were severely affected by the recent weather and Launceston was no exception, as the photo shows.  Such a beautiful photo (thanks Peter!) showing such devastation.  Providence got beaten up:  the grassed areas were a carpet of bits of trees and torn leaves, one can hardly stand up on the slopes but that’s not surprising, seeing as we had over 170 mm rain in a couple of days.  The vineyard is certainly in winter mode and I would imagine that, with the super saturated soil, there wouldn’t be a feeder root left alive.  Pruning will start in about a week.
