After the Storm: A Lament for My Lost Pines

I thought I knew the subject of my next blog post. Mother Nature had other ideas.

A historic storm of massive proportions, described as an inland hurricane, blew into town Tuesday. By 9pm I had lost three of the majestic white pines that have sheltered and shaded us since moving here.

Thank you for all the sympathetic words concerning my lost pine trees. They were like part of the family in a funny kind of way.

So sorry for each of your three lost pines. "Whites" are beautiful and I know they will be missed.

What a shame unfortunetly we too lost a tree in those winds. Our's was a mountain ash and even though not as big a loss as yours, still a loss. It's funny how acustomed one becomes to our landscape and suddenly in one fell swoop of the wind and it's all gone. The bird's will surely miss the pines. They are one of my favorite. As for our Mountain Ash, I too am looking forward, Ah, more room for flowers I'm already making my list for the newbies.
