Blowdown at Island Crest Way and 40th

We had a windy Monday morning- at 4 am we woke to the trees swaying. One tree at Island Crest Way and 40th didn’t make it. This morning you could see what was left:

I always wonder about the trees in a windstorm, especially since more get cut down all the time and they need each other for support. Neighbors tell us that the people we bought our house from cut down three tall, old fir trees. We’ve been thinking about planting a couple of young ones to give the grove around us some strength in years to come.

Speaking of the Mercer Island Bulletin Board…

I took advantage of my stop to take some photos of the notices. Takeaway: there’s plenty to do if you’re a kid or a parent.
