The Smith house, 3 doors down from us, was a bit of a media star, with the big tree leaning on their roof and the neatly up-tipped front yard.
The tree is gone now and inspections for structural damage are taking place. A block over, on Bellhaven, neighbours will be evacuated from their semi for at least 3 months. A back yard oak tree crushed their second floor. The tree was removed in sections by a crane with a scale. One section weighed 11,000 lbs.
OK, enough with the trees. The debris will be with us until city crews eventually show up, but I can clear the branches from my blog right now.
