Holy Mother Of Winds

 Winds have been blowing (est) 40-50+ MPH today. Above live tree blew down across the driveway and I have already pushed one out of the road. A friend asked if I would check and see if his house had been serviced for winter and I was pretty scared to drive over to his house. There were at least 5 trees blown down on our road but you can get around them. There were several blown down on the road leading to his house too but I could get around them.
 I walked down the trail and found two trees across the trail and about 15 or more at various places down. I heard another one fall and it sounded big so I headed back to the house. I can't remember how long it has been since we have had wind like this. Trees are falling in the strong wind - both live and dead trees, almost constantly. Glad I have a workable chain saw to cut the one on the driveway up. The rest will have to wait until this wind subsides as it is just to dangerous to be out there now.
