Good morning

Who needs an alarm clock when you’ve got the Whomping Willow wailing on your deck? Or Whomping Pine Tree as it were…

The part that smashed into our house around 10:30 last night completed its ground assault early this morning (7:30am), waking everyone in the house. It also took our neighbor’s power line with it. Fortunately the live part of the wire is still attached to the pole and not draped on the ground.

There doesn’t seem to be any damage to our roof, which is a piece of luck. We can also see more of the ocean than we could. Who needs pruning when you’ve got crazy weather that obligingly strips branches from blocking your view?
