Hurricane Irene was fairly gentle with us when she roared through. Our power went out for an hour or so Saturday night and then went off again Sunday afternoon for a few hours. Word has it that someone trying to get a limb off a power line took down the whole line. One maple lost four big branches but didn't do any damage. This is the same tree I've lost limbs from every big blow that comes through. There was rot on a couple of them so I think it's time that tree came down! I cleaned up the worst of it the next day with help from my sweetie who has a chain saw. It great that we live on the same cul de sac, and I try hard not to take advantage of his impressive fix it skills!
