Hugh Reilly of Liquid Lunch, on ThatChannel.com interviewed me last week. Here is the interview (23 minutes):

Now that more ice has melted, I can see that the tree fell over entirely. This is the same tree, from a different angle.

Broken Tree

12 February 2019
Richard
The ice was too much for the tree in the previous post, and the weight knocked most of the tree down to the ground. This is how it looks now.

There is another gale today with snow, so everything will still be covered, but perhaps in another week the ice will have melted off the tree enough to see if part of it will survive.

Icy Tree

01 February 2019 | Richard
It's been unusually cold & windy the last couple of days. An onshore gale caused spray high enough up this tree to freeze it into an interesting display.

The wind died down today, and it warmed up to a relatively balmy -10C, and is forecast to keep warming up, which is nice. Too much ice to get out of the harbor to go sailing, though.
