My neighbor's tree, the one that I believe I had posted about where my neighbor chewed me out for cutting down branches that were hanging low over my driveway when I got home earlier this summer came down. It missed Geo's new car by about a foot and blocked the driveway. It's just been cleared away. So far, nothing significant in the back yard except for some blown around items, one bigger branch and a lot of small ones.
A big tree is down across the road at the end of the block that will tie things up for a while. Some neighbors had siding blown off. A friend had a similar incident with a tree coming down and luckily just missing her car. My daughter had a branch come down on her hot tub, I don't know yet how much damage was done.
It's the strongest wind that's been seen in these parts for many years, reaching as much as 80 mph.
