Storm fells Hakea and brings much-needed rain

The old Hakea gave it up in the night, succumbing to the 40 mph winds and the softened soil.  It's root system was way off it's center of gravity.  2 years ago we planted a baby Hakea in the well beside it, and it is thriving.  It will now step up to fill it's predecessor's place.  The ravine is flush with runoff from the deluge we've been having.  It looks pretty tame, actually.
