An Iowa afternoon . . .
I was doing all this work in the garage after a strong storm came through about 6:15pm last night. I just got home, parked my cherry pickup under my trusty, solid elm tree (full of leaves to deflect hail).
The neighbor's hanging baskets looked like open parachutes in the wind - Holy Shit ! They said it got to 100mph right through my neighborhood. My 1880s house, with original cedar siding and square-head nails held up. The elm bopped a 4" branch, putting a silver dollar dent in my top - Rats.
I had a few sticks here and there - My neighbors (photos below) weren't as lucky . . .
