This is what is left of one of our was tall redwoods in our backyard. It stands a little shorter today as it lost 33 feet of the top of the tree. It had two tops, one broke off in June during a summer wind storm and yesterday the second top came down in "our" yard. It was 33 ft long and had a base radius of 12 inches.
I am glad that it came down before today's big storm. The piece that came down in June went in the neighbors yard and smashed their gutter. This piece would have done some real major damage. Now we don't have to worry about it the rest of the winter and really for about five years or so. The tree still stands about 40 feet. We have 37 of them on our small property and I love them, they are so majestic...
It's raining cats & dogs here today. They say we will get three inches by tonight. I wish I was at home today. I love being home in the weather, love watching the wind whip through the trees and watching the rain pour down. It would be a perfect day to bake ginger snaps!
I hope everyone is staying dry.. Happy Friday :)
