Our Trees

When we first dared to poke our heads out after the wind died down,
we walked down our street. 
This house is about six doors down from us.

Back up at the head of our street,
no matter which way we looked...

... there was no way out.

Pine trees, with their relatively shallow root structures,
were particularly vulnerable:

And giant slices of decades-old trees 
soon lined many of the roads in town.

It is so sad. How lucky, blessed, that you had no trees down, your roof is intact, and basement not flooded. My heart goes out to the so many people that were not so fortunate.
