Right after I wrote the post earlier this morning the power went out and stayed out for 8 hours. We have the new generator but we did not need to use it as the power was not off long enough. Late this afternoon the front end loader came down the road pushing numerous trees that had been blown over off to the side. We can count 6 trees on our property that also blew over that we can see from our window. Rough day in the mountains with 12-14 hours of 50+ mph wind that blew continuously. We have branches everywhere.
