Like they say, blogs without photos are like trees with no tops…

It got windy here a couple of weeks ago. I don’t know how well the photo depicts reality, but those trees are on the order of 20″ in diameter…

    Reminds me of something I saw in 2005

    The below picture shows a wood storage set-up at an airport in southern Sweden after the storm Gudrun 2005.
    The storage was 2 million trees and the height of the piles is up to thirteen meters (42 feet).

    The hurricane Gudrun swept over the southern parts of Sweden 8-9 January 2005 and felled 70 million m3 of
    wood, equal to an annual Swedish forest harvest. This is equal to a tenth of the standing forest in southern Sweden , mostly Norway Spruce

    But there have been worse of course ..
    When hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast it not only uprooted and killed citizens, but it also killed millions of trees. In fact, Tulane University researchers estimated the number at 320 million
