Hywel: Avoid. SNOW!
Now, I was so excited to see it start to snow on my way back from visiting my sister in hospital with pneumonia.
I woke up this morning to find the predicted 5-10cm and the local kids out or a morning snowball fight.
There was one thing that brought the tone down. No, not a rogue snowball, but uring the night it appears acording to the tyre tacks in the snow that a car skided off the road and up the kerb taking out my Wilma Goldcrest Cypressus.
I have examined the pieces and it looks like it was luckily in a large pot.
The pot is in disrepair, and will need a new one when the snow and ice thaws.
The tree where it landed. The circle and arrow show where the tree had been and the hole where it had been secured in the ground.
It stayed pright during the gales, but a driver decuded tehy didn’t like cypressus.

I then lifted the pot to move it, and then found more damage.
