One Down...

Uploaded by: ChrisAnthemum

Tuesday October 30, 2012

Westfield, NC (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Driving around the neighborhood this afternoon for the first time since Sunday morning, looking for storm damage, I didn't see much. However, this white pine had succumbed to the winds, fortunately missing two houses and a power line. White pines are short-lived and shallow-rooted, which is why I haven't planted any in my yard, even as graceful as they are.

True, Heidrun, and there are other factors at work. I've seen these trees break off, tip over, or just plain die and stand there dead. Oftentimes, carpenter ants or other insects get into the trunk and roots and weaken them. This one appears to have broken at the ground level. Thanks for commenting!

Sad to see a beautiful tree come down but the shallow root system just isn`t able to hold the tree up in a bigger storm !

Thank you both, Genie and Peg! We are fine, not too much damage around here, although there was a death in the next county, when a man drove his car into a tree that had fallen on the road. We did not get the snow that they had in the mountains.

I have been wondering about you ever since I heard the storm was hitting North Carolina. So glad you are safe. Terrible for so much of the country.

Yes indeed, Eileen, and scary when you think how lightly our area was touched; others have it MUCH worse! Thanks for adding your comment!

Yes, thank you, Wanda, for asking... we had a little power flicker last night but never lost power, no damage to our property so far as I can see. Safe and well, not like those in some other parts of the country. Quite a storm this was! The winds are dying down now.
