wall collapse

on the side of the coastguard building we had a small building which wasn't used for anything.  I think it was a small place to park a car many years ago.  With the strong gusty winds we had during the week, the outside wall blew down.  Our neighbor parks his car in the space you see on the left.  Luckily it wasn't damaged so the other day he started to lower the remaining wall so it wouldn't be a problem.  Next month, he will rent a dumpster (skip) to have the cement blocks hauled away.


this is the front, trees had been growing inside for years.  It had a door, an opening for a window and no roof.  Not very sturdy for strong winds.  So the collapse was the loud noise we heard on Sunday night.  It's rather interesting, nobody really paid attention to the building.

  2. It looks as though it should have been demolished anyway - the wind has done the job for you.

  4. Sort of reminds me of the story of the three little pigs: Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house down! :-)

  6. Wow! I'm glad no one got hurt.. but what is the point of a car park if there is not a roof?

  8. Looks like a few nation states around the world, slowly crumbling into disrepair and ruin.

  13. You must have had some very strong winds there. I had a sort of similar close call where I live. When we had those high winds last week, a tree came down and crashed through the carport cover in the space next to mine. There was no damage because no one was parked in that space at the time but the funny thing is, no one heard anything and it must have made a loud crash.

  23. A structure that's neglected will eventually fall.

  26. If Mother Nature's going to have a hissy fit like that it's always good when no one gets hurt.

  28. The wall fell down after many years, so lucky the vehicle wasn't damaged. Have to count their blessings on that.
