Once I got to the farm yesterday, I saw these trees fallen across the springhouse. The biggest one was at least 75 feet tall and when it fell, it took at least two others with it. The roof of the building is destroyed, but I couldn’t get close enough to see if the walls were damaged. They didn’t seem to be, but the trees were so big, I couldn’t see much of the building. While this is disappointing, it isn’t too much of a setback for the farm because we weren’t planning to use the springhouse for a couple of years, at least. It’ll take a lot of work to clear those trees, but there’s no huge rush to do it. All things considered, that’s not too much damage considering the severity of the storms.
We’re taking this weekend off from the farm to work around the house and go to my niece’s 10th birthday party. I’ve already gotten most of the mowing done, but there’s still a lot of weed-eating to finish, and I’ve got a mountain of grading to do.
Once I make it through finals, hopefully I can write more, but for now, I’m just trying to get through the next week.
