our lost sentinels.....

mother nature has had a serious attitude lately...

the storm night before last was the worst this area has seen

since hurricane hugo made his march across our little hamlet!

as far as i know...there were no personal injuries

but....oh....so many...beautiful...old... trees...

lost.....





















trying to navigate around our county has been

like finding your way thru a maze...

road after road is completely blocked...

power lines down...

i've always heard when life deals you a lemon
squeeze it and make lemonade....

maybe we need to use these wisened...old...sentinels

to make furniture.....

Wow how sad, but you definitely have a good idea to make a bad situation better. Stay safe! I am glad there were no injuries!

3 yrs ago we had a bad wind go through and tear down all our trees. They said it was not a tornado ,however, our streets were lined with broken trees and we were without power for about 2 weeks. You could not ever drive down the streets. I could not even see my neighbor , her back yard was covered with downed trees....but some how the disaster in Joplin seems minor to what happend here....I thought our streets looked like a war zone,nothing looks the same since....but I pray we never have to see what Joplin did last week...190 mph...it does make one nervous all these storms....:-) good to hear you are all safe....
