We had some very interesting weather this past week. Steady winds between 20 mph and 40 mph and gusts as high as 80 mph.
This meant shingles flying, trees breaking and new found lawn furniture in the yard. Okay, we didn't really find new furniture in the yard but ours was blown around. I suspect people found things that didn't belong to them after they dared to venture out again.
This picture is of my two little ones standing next to a fairly small branch that fell onto the lilac bushes.
This is another picture I took of the scene to show the size of the trees.
Here is another one of our trees that broke. I'm not sure but I think it is an ash tree. This one was laid partly across our driveway.
And to think, just last week I was complaining about leaves. Now I'm crying for the lost tree and cursing the mess we have yet to clean up.
