We lost some trees in the storm :(

Last night a big storm came through and caused lots of damage. Overall we were very lucky. We have power at home and neither of our houses were damaged. However, we were sad to see so many trees lost in our neighborhood. :(

RE: We lost some trees in the storm :(

So sorry....reminds me of our freak oct storm last year. The weight of the snow on the trees still with their leaves broke so many branches. We had over a dozen trees damaged...took us 2 weeks of clean up and we still had to get a tree guy in to do the high work. It is interesting though to see how the areas where trees came down and made holes in the woods are filling in with plants that couldve never survived in the shade of the trees. Mother nature heals herself.

RE: We lost some trees in the storm :(

Yes, you are lucky. Many homes in my neighborhood gained trees in the storm. Two of them through the roof and one lost the entire bedroom portion of the home by means of a monster oak coming down.

No injuries though so that's something to be thankful for.
