No damage

I know we're not supposed to, but we just took a walk around the property.  We lost some deadwood - not as much as I would have liked.

A bunch of litter in the driveway:

This is a big dead tree out back.  I'm impressed by the way it managed to land right in between those two trees.

I'm glad it wasn't taller.

That's about it, unless something gives up the ghost tonight.  I got a couple of nice weather related userpics.  Does that count as a plus?  Hey galingale - get your husband's attention because later I'm going to post pictures of the bumper crop of mushrooms we've got going back there.

I'm going to go set a shelf standard in the closet, and then warp up the loom.  I spent a big chunk of this morning rolling yarn into balls.  Tedious, that.

Sadly, that one is long dead and all punky. But once we start cutting down some of the problem trees, we'll have plenty.

We made out well, but it's going to be an interesting drive to work tomorrow through all the flooding. There are worse problems to have. :-)

Whew! Glad nothing else was damaged besides the big old tree & your house is fine. You seem to be on high ground, & that's a good thing 'cause it sounds like most of the serious damage was caused by flooding.

Oh no - that wasn't the big tree. That was some random old dead tree back in the woods. We're definitely on high ground, so I never worry about flooding. I'm not sure how I'm getting to the office tomorrow, though.

I'm supposed to be leaving right now with Char (Purchase is right near you...you can see Conn. from the quad)and I'm not sure how to get there either. Last I heard, the Tappanzee was closed, a 90 mile chunk of 87 was closed, and several chunks of roads in Westchester and Rockland are closed. It seems the school is an island of "ok" surrounded by flood.

If I was Donald Trump and I had a helicopter, all this wouldn't matter.

If you were Donald Trump and had a helicopter, she wouldn't be going to SUNY Purchase. :-)

Good luck.
