We have gotten some nasty storms this week. Tuesday we had some real damage to one very nice tree, lost another and had a pretty large branch just miss the house and one not so big just miss the chicken coop. Last night we had a thunder storm with really intense lightning from around 6:30pm - 11pm. What is with this weather...Idaho and Washington are getting snow. We're getting crazy heat on the East Coast and crazy storms near me. And the midwest is getting flooded! Some shots from around my house after the storm. This is a very beautiful tree, we think it's an American Elm. This was a China Berry tree, very pretty - very invasive. Wind blew this over the roof like 30 feet and it ended up landing only about 6-8 from the house. Our chickens really got a kick out of this one that just missed the coop.
