It could be worse...
|The issue with my neck (a prolapsed C6/7 disk) is unfortunate, but at least the big old tree in our backyard* made it through Friday's storm OK.|
This house is about 8 doors down from us:
This side street is a block and a bit away:
These people have been without power for 40+ hours;
And 2.5 blocks away from us there was this carnage:
Luckily, the only damage was downed power lines
As I walked by, I heard a father reassure his small daughter "It's OK, the wires can't shock you - they aren't electrified anymore"
It must have been quite the sound when this tree limb was ripped off by the wind.
And we didn't even get hit by the tornados that touched down north of the city.
*This tree is right beside our garage, and is taller than our house. If it toppled over it would take out 2 garages at minimum, and could easily hit one of 4 houses. The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
