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.

High winds can be a nightmare. Please try to stay safe.

Yikes! Now if only you had a whole troupe of 13 year old kids to help haul away the trees after you cut them up!

Thank you again for your help and good company during my vehicular crisis last weekend. And thank you, Carol, for sharing your home and chocolate chip cookies!

John: You are welcome and we enjoyed our time with you. Bring those 13 year old kids back...Lots of work now for them... If the snow holds off and LaPuente gets another group in they may be able to come get them. Hope your vehicle troubles worked out and the cost was minimal. We enjoyed your visit..like they say on the Motel 6 ad - the door is always open and we'll leave the light on...
