On Sunday after the worst of the wind passed, I drove over to work because my phone wouldn't get thru. All the way down the main road's busy zone the traffic lights were out. Alot of other folks were driving fast n carelessly thru the numerous intersections. It was a white knuckle ride. Winds were still fairly strong.
Traffic lights in the middle of the ride were working, then out again. Tree debris was everywhere.
Power was out at work, but folks were there. I could've elected to go to the Boston plant who was covering our company's area for the day after the Hurricane. I declined that offer, n on the way back home stopped at the D-bridge n took a few pics. I stayed near the abuttment, it seemed too windy to go out to the middle of the rail.
The maple trees in front of the R's next door lost a few sections. This one I could see out the kitchen window, resting on their upstairs deck, n also on my telephone wires! (can see if you look closely).
That's MapleBeard n my deck in the BG.
Out in the backyard normally clear access to the road is totally blocked by hunks of the huge Ecclesiastical tree.
I'm not sure if this hunk of maple is from my tree or the R's, but I'm very grateful it landed next to Little Truck, n not on it!
I'd noticed quite a few thrill seekers out driving in the middle of the strong storm portions. We were spared alot of rain, but had winds. At one point I looked out the front window- all was okay, turned around to do something, glanced back, n in that short time a tree had fallen from the woods across the road in front of my house!
This dude with a (pixelated) CT plate stopped, openned the trunk, pulled out a chainsaw- n began chopping to move it out of the road! I grabbed my cam n went out on the gale-force deck to grab his pic- He looked up n I waved n yelled a hearty "Thankyou! That was really quick service!" How nice was that? wow
I'll be chopping branches for weeks here...
