Wind!



We were very lucky this time as the worst winds (125-130mph) hit the coast north of us...we got 81mph winds and our electricity is still on!
The only casuality in the near neighborhood was one of the small firs across the street. You can see the manager is already out with his chainsaw taking care of it.
Here's a view the other way so you can see all the huge firs we have in the park....they weathered the storm beautifully as they have for the past 150 years...
Sadly, we heard that one of the oldest Sitka spruces in the US was in the direct path of the winds and was snapped off...
