Posted on Jul 8, 2012 6:21 PM

Maple tree (that took down many others) at trail head of pine tree forest and the trees it took down with it.  Fortunately, it was "off" the trail.

We had just gotten this mess cleaned up on the day the storm came.

We are so blessed that our home is safe and so are we. 


Heartfelt thanks to our Ohio and Florida family for offering to come help.

Eternal gratitude to Brad and Michelle for coming over almost every morning at oh dark thirty and helping us.  It's so hot here you can only work from daylight until around 10 am.

Sharon, thank you for your time and patience in showing me how to do this.  You are a wonderful and patient teacher.
