I woke up this morning at 4:30 a.m. to the sound of thunder--the third day in a row! Not only did the storm fronts bring us desperately-needed rain, but the blistering temperatures have abated at last. Monday night we had a series of storms, with just over an inch and a half of rain. Yesterday's early-morning storm was brief but violent--toppling a trunk from our neighbor's silver maple into the back yard. This tree is now slated for removal. Hoorah!
|Fortunately, it missed almost everything!|
