Since Gabrielle lots of places where we walk our dogs are closed, or inaccessible, and likely to be for months. I drove down Ormond Road, thinking I'd be able to access the limestone pathway there. I had forgotten this area was badly affected during the cyclone, and the road was closed, and all I could see was mud, where the road was. Along the sides of the road leading to the closed part was all this debris. It was very confronting all over again! I am one of the extremely lucky people who was virtually unaffected by Gabrielle. These sights are heartbreaking ....
