Out of the Blue

Well, we survived the bomb cyclone, and the ensuing rain combined with the mild temperatures so that after hours of snow, we ended up with less snow on the ground than we had when the snow started. We had a surprisingly close call along the way, though. A fairly substantial tree across the street snapped at the base due to high wind and some dry rot. The wind was blowing perpendicular to the street, but this sucker fought that to fall 45 cross-wind in an effort to reach my car. This was dramatically close, I'd say the tips of the branches were about two feet from the car when it came to rest. The neighbor across the street wasn't so lucky, as the tree yanked the electrical main right out of her house, and as far as we can see, this still hasn't been fixed, though the tree was cleared after a few hours. It's clear out there now, but not calm, as the high winds persist, presumably hunting for more vulnerable trees to separate from the herd.
