It sounded like fireworks around here today. All around us, in neighbors yards, the woods, all you heard was crack-crack, pop-pop, snap, bang, thud.

I only have 2 trees in my yard, but they are huge! The one in the back yard has been estimated to be more than 200 years old.

We had some minor damage to the fence, but for the most part, so far, the branches fell in the yard. One from the tree in the side yard fell across the road, and I needed help getting it out of the way.

Here's a couple pics:

blocking our porch entrance

had to get this one off the fence



my poor fence (it broke a 4x4 post, but can be fixed)

other side of the yard


I've been outside all day cutting branches up, and still have a long way to go, plus I have a chainsaw coming at some point for the really big stuff. What a day!! Aaaarrrrrgggggggg!

I know how you feel. When we had the big 3 blizzards and our trees fell down on our power lines and broke our gutters. It was a pain but we got it fixed.
That's why last spring all the big huge pine trees I got cut down. Now, if my neighbors would only trim their trees back.

We had no big snow here just mix. When we went to our vets, 30mins away, it was a totally different world. Snow heavy, 3-4ins on ground and roads, people stuck.

Got back home and nothing.. Strange storm.
