that is a relief….
Why would I be so happy a pine tree in the yard of the house next door– fell [part of Irene’s damage] in my backyard?
The tree leaning in this photo– is the one that fell.
Here is the photo of the fallen tree– which must have fallen last night when I was sleeping. Never heard a thing.
Did not hit the shed, the house nor the deck on the back of the house. It did damage the rustic fence dividing the yards– however the fence was put up by prior neighbors. The neighbor’s house [bank owned] is now empty.
It started raining here around noon yesterday and is still raining with steady winds and wind gusts.
Yes, I was very worried about that tree.. If you do not live in an area with lots of pines and oaks you may not know how dangerous those trees are in storms. Our area has been hit by a lot of storms [rain, snow] in recent years and the trees have suffered… Riding along the BW Parkway shows some of the damage the trees have sustained…
This is a big relief.
