Dogwood down

Wind storm moved through the mountains of western NC while I was at Noel & Patrick's for a few days. On Monday morning we woke to find an older dogwood tree had been ripped up out of the ground. It was still full of blooms and probably acted like a kite in the wind. Luckily, this was the only significant damage that happened on their property. The winds were around 75 mph, according to local law enforcement folks. It was quite gusty most of the daylight hours on Monday but by the next morning all was calm again.

Patrick had a trip planned but had to cut back branches before being able to get his car out. The tree managed to fall between our cars...didn't hit either car as it came down.

Sad to see an old tree go but just couldn't withstand the gust.
