I visited the NY Hall of Science today and saw the damage from last Thursday’s freak storm. I could not believe how many trees were down. One pine tree, photographed below, was snapped in half. The storm toppled several trees, and they rested on their sides, roots up.
I guess we’re lucky that the high winds came through last week, giving crews more time for clean up before World Maker Faire opens. Workers had already cleaned up quite a bit from the storm so I wasn’t seeing all the damage.
I hope Mother Nature got that bit of nastiness out of her system so we can expect good weather for the big weekend ahead.
