The dead and diseased ones, that is. The healthy ones we left up seem to be handling things pretty well. The wind was wicked all day yesterday, and it doesn’t seem to have let up today. The screenhouse around the hot tub, despite its weight and the additional weight holding down the corners, has been blown a good two feet over – we’ll have to move it back so the corner of the hot tub doesn’t tear the fabric. The patio chairs fell over early on. If we hadn’t had the dead branches removed and the trees infested with wood-boring insects taken down, I have a feeling we might be sleeping in a hotel right now, wondering how much water damage the house would sustain from the holes where the trees fell. The wind is coming in and rattling the blower for the furnace/air conditioning. All night the noise of acorns dropping onto the roof kept me awake. My sinuses are killing me, my headache is not so awful as yesterday but still a PITA, back hurts from tossing and turning in bed, but at least we don’t have trees through the roof.
