  1. I came home yesterday and noticed a very large upper branch of a tree had split and fallen, but caught by the next tree just a few feet before damaging my roof. Lots of damage around here too, I just didn’t notice it till I got up to work yesterday.

    Walking home late last night, the parking lot of the hotel nearby was filled with over a dozen bucket trucks from various electrical and tree services…interesting to see how they mobilize to help out the areas that need it and must have stopped here on their way up.
