A Window With a View


Originally uploaded by Wandering Eyre

This was the sight that greeted us, along with the rain, Saturday morning after the winds had passed. There were a lot of trees down in the Heights and the streets were flooded. The water subsided after the rain stopped, but the trees required some effort on the resident’s part.

In this picture, you can see the large oak at the end of the driveway, that fell across the road. This was a situation that was repeated at least once on every block in this neighborhood. A few blocks over, two houses burned down the night of the storm because a transformer fell on one of them and the fire trucks were unable to get to the houses. The roads were too full of debris.
