We lost our front yard hickory tree. Our only major shade tree in front. See my daughter's husband's truck. Kathy stayed all night here. We lost power for over 5 hours. I am still so thankful that the tree did not fall on the truck..it fell the other way. Plus It did not fall on the house or garage/shop. It did also take out the juniper tree by the flag pole. Bent the flagpole to the east a bit.
This is a before shot, you can see how tall it was. We can not save it, the main trunk is broken . The neighbor lost half of one of his apple trees. The storm hit at 2:00 , the power and the tree both went at 2:15. There's trees down all over town. They were showing pictures on the news broadcast this morning. I am ever so thankful the power is back on.
Ted and I will have plenty of work this coming week. Of course he will save the hickory wood for burn ...maybe around February . It has to season.
Hope all of you are safe and faired well through the storms. XO
