I saw that some places where i go usually are destroyed... :cry:
The community is getting organized to put thing's straight as soon as possible.
I strongly believe that those places will become the places that always were.

some years ago we had a huge storm...
I know how you are feeling! :cry:

No it is the time for sorrow, but in a couple of weeks:

Think about Bob Dylan:
But times there is a changing and blowing in the wind.... :blush:

or...
you will experience some wonderful new spots in some years!
Changed, new and lovely in a different way than you know today! <3

I hope no one was hurt!

Sorry to learn of this sadness.

I hope the community rallies together to recover as best as possible.

Maybe you will find some "new" places that offer "new" opportunities and rewards?

Nature is a can be a terrible thing but it is good to remember how small we really are. Be well.

Thank's for the kind words everyone. :)
In fact, those places are not lost, just damaged.
They estimate that around one thousand centenary trees went down, as some several houses that exist there, for touristic rent.
one of the oldest cedars was partially destroyed, it's dated from the Napoleonic Invasions in late 1700's.
This place is unique because it's the only place in Europe that has lot's of tree species from around the world.
The cleaning will take around 6 month's...
Definitely, it was just one more example that Nature rules. :)
:cheers:
