One of the little splinters that blew
over the house into the front yard
Another huge "splinter" in the fern bed
After the limbs were cleared...
The car did not have a scratch however the electronics in the truck were damaged. That is in the shop for repairs. The wiring for the phone lines has been replaced, new Internet modem installed and one phone that was not killed rings shrilly.
I did not miss the phone.
A new sand bar is formed in the creek
and a water gate is destroyed.
The nice thing about our valley the waters recede quickly
even though destruction is left in its wake.
The ponds are flowing out the spillways
the cattle are happy in their green grass
and we endure Nature's tantrum
because of her wonderful gifts.
