This is a shot to the west from last fall - maybe 11 months ago. This is from yesterday. Count the trees. The woods are impassable (to me right now,) so it will have to be winter before I get brave enough to try to go back there.
From this shot, taken across the street, you can see how close the maple tree is to the wires, the power supply to the next town over, and my house. One of the vans is next to the carport - safe, but if the tree does come down, neither of us will be able to get out of the driveway. You can see how the gum tree is leaning with the weight of the maple tree.
Maybe we can save the half that is still upright. It was a pretty maple.
This is part of a tree on the east end of the property... It landed about 12 feet from the same power lines at the edge of the woods.Same tree????? These horizontal branches should be vertical!
Have I mentioned how Punkin and Spook hate storms? They will probably spend the next day or two slowly taking inventory of the yard and woods. Oh, look, what is this? What are all these twigs doing here????? Now, what happened to that mouse I left here yesterday for a snack?Notice all the leaves? And it isn't even autumn here for another month or so!
Even Buddha got a present from a tree.
