The storms have been awful everywhere lately it seems. Our neighbors tree got struck by lightning last week, but last nite’s was even worse. I’m sure everyone has heard about the 4 boy scouts who were killed and dozens more injured? I feel awful for their parents - they heard on the news coverage of the weather that the camp had been hit. As if losing a child isn’t bad enough, but to have had to wonder for hours if your child was ok is even worse.
It is sad. A few years ago we lost about 30 big trees on our lot. And amazingly only a very little damage a ding on the roof corner and a ding on the van roof! It is sad the gap the missing trees leave!
We get straight line winds through our neck of the burgh at least once a year. It is amazing how fast the undergrowth takes off once it comes out of the shadow of the big old growth trees. Still… its sad to see them fall. Hope you and yours are all intact.
