Gone with the wind
I am kind of sad to see two of the mature evergreen blue spruce trees vaporizing in thin air. They were planted 40 years ago to mark the borders between our house and our neighbors’. They had grown to roughly 3 ½ stories high. The wind on Tuesday, as strong as a category two hurricane, knocked down both trees and pulled them up from the roots. The tree closer to our garage had a huge base in which many small animals like to hide. We have seen chipmunks, rabbits and turtles hiding in there. Since they were planted to mark the borders of our houses, they were owned by us and our neighbor. One of the tree fell down on top of my neighbor’s roof and the other fell down on our drive way. Luckily, they didn’t create much damage.
