NICOLE Hunter can see clearly now the storm has gone.At the beginning of last week, she could not see past her front yard but after Friday's fierce storm, things have changed.''This place is like the tip. We never used to be able to see the winery but now it's all been demolished.''Ms Hunter was in Ballarat when she heard the news of what was thought to be a mini tornado at Beaufort and Trawalla.The isolated storm came through about 8.15pm destroying about 250 trees on her property.Upon her return home, Ms Hunter's main concern was for the house, the dogs and her award-winning Rhode Island Bantams.''We had a big tree through the shed but other than that everything was fine,'' she said.The eight hectares of land were covered with debris. The access road on the rear of the property was completely blocked by trees and chicken pens had flown across the yard.State Emergency Service crews blocked a one-kilometre stretch of the Western Highway between Beaufort and Trawalla as they cleared the road of trees and powerlines on Friday night.
