Trees Down

This month we have had a series of storms that have dropped lots of rain on our area. The ground is wet and along with some high winds we have had some trees down.

Tonight I thought I would share a few pictures from the neighborhood.

High Wind, saturated soil, park warning, treesThere were High Wind Warning signs posted at the nearby park and there was some damage to the trees.

Here you can see one that is leaning, but it was not affected by the wind or wet soil. You can see that the limbs are parallel to the ground.

This is not on my normal walking route, and I have always avoided this sidewalk as the limbs hung too low. I am sure that at some point it will get cleaned up. It is probably not high on the priority list as there are areas of town that have major tree damage and still have flooding issues.
