Ike's Aftermath

Grandpa Steve and Julia lost five trees on their 1/2 acre lot. None fell on wires, cars, or buildings, although one took out some of the fence and smashed a birdbath in Julia's garden. Today Steve chopped down the trees that were about to topple over (onto the house). He rented a lift and cut them starting from the top and dropping the sections into the yard as you can see on the right. What you can't see is the house because the yard is filled with tree debris. It's pretty sad and reminds me of how Tommy mourned for the tree that was cut down in front of his house when he was very young, 2 0r 3.

  1. I am glad that everyone is alright. It was a pretty intense storm, it seems. (Also: I think Tom is still mourning that tree =))
