I drove around town a little this morning and saw literally hundreds of trees either uprooted or snapped in two, a high-rise condo building with at least 12 to 14 condos with windows blown out, the power plant on the roof of that same building completely blown off and smashed into the street below, awnings torn to pieces, and finally this unlucky house pictured above in the top photo.
I spoke to a neighbor of this home when I took the picture and found out that no one was hurt, however the people living there had just walked out of their living room when the tree fell. The living room is a complete loss. In fact the whole front of the house is laying in the yard (under the tree) in piles of bricks.
I have a whole new empathy for all of you who must contend with tornados and hurricanes all summer long. The power of nature is awe inspiring thing.
I’ll be away over the weekend and won’t be able to see your comments until I return on Monday.
