Looking at some reports, the winds got to be well past 70 mph and lasted for 15 minutes at 50-80mph. That's almost like a category 1 hurricane. No wonder why this and several thousand trees didn't make it.

adore this document of the loss of your favorite tree.....I am a lover of trees as you are.
I especially miss them since living in Florida where we don't have many "Real Trees" like back home in Tennessee.
With sympathy....

It was a willow tree, but still very sad. I'll have to upload my favorite photo of it, I took in July 2008 with my old point and shoot. It would have been nice to have gotten the same exact shot as an update with my current camera, but I couldn't.

I am so very sorry. I know how you feel, especially when we lose another majestic old elm.

Thanks. As I ride my bike around the area, I see more and more what damage the storms did. It was not only Friday but Saturday too. The winds in some areas got well over 60 to 70 mph.

Friday night I had a friend over trying to clean one of my windows before the storm hit. We had all but one panes out on one window. The rain gushed in and created puddles. It was frightening, but I managed to get things dry and we got the window back in after the winds died down.

Ah, weep for the willow! It grew quite tall - perhaps its roots weren't able to keep up with its height. Good work documenting this event, Mary.

I'm so sorry, I love trees too, they are living beings and we have a lot of good from them.
