Near miss

 One of the trees has been threatening to damage the stables so after all the high winds of the last weeks decisive action was taken.
 The plan was that it should fall towards the Runway in the Corral OK, and be chopped up into nice neat sections as time allowed. Unfortunately the tree did not adhere to the plan and took a dive towards the stable, the one we were trying to protect.
Not the best of video clips but you get the idea.
Thankfully despite its size the unexpected landing zone was almost big enough to accommodate a large amount of timber.
Admittedly we had to fight our way in to the med bay
and it took a while but eventually we got there.
There's a term for this hole. Collateral Damage.
