The Nor’easter winter storm the past few days was named “Plato”…
and had winds over fifty MPH.
The winds changed directions rapidly and it is thought that the
rapid push and pull of the gale force winds snapped the 15 feet of
the tree top off.
Tonight’s Winter Storm “Q” is going inland, and the Downeast coast of
Maine, USA, has been forecast, to quote the weather man on the local
news this evening … “slush”. (I live between Bangor and Bar Harbor
mid way up the coast of Maine).
.Tree behind house swaying in the wind Monday February 18, 2013
The tree WAS almost as tall as the church steeple next door…the church is at the top of the hill of the street I live on…the photo also is a bit off kilter to get both in the photo.
Tuesday, February 19, 2013, 15 feet of tree on railing of back deck. I was finding pieces
of the tree on the front lawn yesterday, Monday. Laughed and thought WoW !
Today, not laughing and saying “Blessed.”
You can see where it snapped off going back and forth in the winds.
I never heard a thing…a big surprise this morning looking out the
dining room window ! As far as I can tell, no damage to the house,
roof or windows…. it landed on the deck railing.
