My World Tuesday

This past June we had a thunderstorm which blew down our Bradford Pear trees. It hailed like crazy making the pool a sea of waves. As you can see the house still has tarps on it from the Hurricane wind storm from last Sept.

3 trees, all damaged. We are giving them til next summer to recover. I think we are going to loose 2 of the 3.

Another canopy over the swing set fort---gone. I don't how many times we have replaced it. I think this time the kids will have to go without a roof.

Who ever thought Ohio would get the remnants of Hurricane Ike!
We lost a total of five trees in the woods behind out house between the June storm and Ike. Our Cleveland Pear nearly split in two in the front yard. We are still worrying over it wondering if it is going to make it. So far, so good!!
Great photos and great blog!!

I'm so glad we had taken down the sycamore tree by our house before that storm, otherwise it probably would have ended up in our house! lol

Those storms must be terrifying.

The weather has been amazing and unpredictable here in Seattle the past year! Evidently you have had some of the same. Such a pity to lose trees! Great photos!

Have a good week!

It is sad to lose the trees. The storms can do so much damage. Important thing is that no one gets hurt.
