The lights gave a couple of flickers, then went out entirely! About the same time, the noise of the wind increased, and the sound of hail hitting the side of the house was heard! Oh, my! The dwarf fruit trees are being blown almost horizontally with the ground! Yikes!
Through the light of dusk, this was visible.
|Cedar trees downed by the wind!|
The wind and hail were only present a short time, thankfully, but the wind left a reminder of its force. The Husband worked much of the day on Friday clearing the evidence of Thursday evening's storm away.
|Are you able to see where the top of the tree broke?|
Another limb was blown here -
We found a shingle on the ground, too, but haven't replaced it as yet.
|We think we've seen where it belongs.|
Though part of the cedar tree fell over a corner of the garden, there was actually no damage done.
Everything is looking good and green! The hail wasn't enough of an issue to cause any damage to the plants.
That power outage? It was three hours long! Just as our bedtime approached, on came the lights! Then came the trek through the house to take care of those blinking clocks!:-)
I send you happy Saturday wishes! Enjoy this holiday week-end!
