Out My Back Window

An especially hard gust of wind shook the house just before we lost power on Monday.  I was quite thankful that the half-dozen trees that fell on three sides of my house all fell where they hit only other trees and dirt.  These were all within 100 feet of my house.

    Zowie! Glad you’re safe Howard. At least you have a lot of wood for the fireplace. Best to you,

    Lived in New Cannan many yrs. Never had a storm that bad. My place in Michigan now looks much the same except we’re removing 100 foot ash trees that have been decimated by the ash borer.

      Hey, Dave….

      I’m pretty sure it was what they call a “microburst” because it was so localized, and because most of the trees were literally twisted or snapped off above the ground rather than pushed over and uprooted.

    Good for you for dodging the Sandy bullet.

    Yup I lost a bunch of trees but they missed my house too. Whole house power generator paid for itself in spades. The Gods of the market did get me however. I lost my Internet connection for two days.
