On Sunday night we went to the concert in
, and I was saddened to see that Saturday's storm had toppled a very large tree that I had stopped to admire on more than one occasion. This tree stood at the entrance to Willow Park Cherokee Park right across from . Willow Park
We were lucky; there was no damage at our house, and we kept power. A tree in the back corner of our neighbor's yard broke about 8 feet up the trunk, but it fell away from our yard, sparing our fence. This same tree overhangs our yard, and I've hung birdhouses from it. Some trees and large limbs were lost down the street from us. We fared better than my parents, who lost electricity for a couple of days, and whose neighbors had a large tree crash into the back of their house. Two cars in front of my parents' house were smashed by a large oak limb.
