The only damage in the front was a small limb (10 feet long?) that fell down and failed to harm anything on the way down or in landing.
It seems like the worst winds came up the creek valley, hit our hillside and did a lot of damage, but then didn't do much to the opposite hillside or the houses.
|Trunks and branches. This was the path we used to get down to the brush piles and the rest of the woods. We might need to borrow a chainsaw ...|
|I think this is just a branch. There aren't any roots, it's just a random chunk of tree that fell from somewhere.|
|I only found one root structure so I think this was all one tree. (That's our neighbor's yard that it fell in.)|
|The tree that fell in the neighbor's yard. In the distance you can see the sixth fallen tree.|
|The sixth fallen tree. It was obviously a bit rotten and hollow inside.|
|The hollow tree claimed a victim on its way down: the seventh fallen tree I counted on our hillside of the woods.|
|Looking past the hollow tree to Bill's tree.|
|The empty hole in the sky where the lightning tree used to be.|
