The day started out ok...

So yesterday's wind storm left some casualties, thankfully none on my yard, and after 26 hours without power, everything seems to be back to normal… but some people have some cleaning up to do.

There are more garden shots here (for your Keryl) [photoblog.com]

I managed to get some shots in the garden before the wind came…

This tree towered above the 2 story house beside it… they were lucky it came down the way it did.

This was a few steps down the road… another of several that came down in and around the village, knocking out power for over 24 hours.

This one actually isn't mine. My daughter Katie took it, it's the remnants of my ‘survival kit’ lol

      Nice documentation Marjorie. The cleaning up is a pain but as long as the houses are fine, it is a small consolation. I was still busy removing trees after work today but, I guess that happens when you live in a forest.
