When the forecast showed high humidity and temps in the 90’s for the next 4 days, we decided to go back home a week early, knowing it was going to be hot in Madison too. We stayed until Thursday morning and returned back to the northland and much nicer weather. BUT, while we were gone another big storm ripped through here, taking down many trees that survived the July 1st storm. This really sucks. There were branches down all around the cabin.
More trees snapped in half that will be used for firewood. Some were uprooted and laying on top of other trees.
Miraculously, the gazebo survived, but has some serious structural damage. The ancient swing set I use for my flags even got knocked over. My little blind was in a heap again, but after shaking it a few times, it popped right back up, good as new. And then I noticed this tree. Okay, that’s got to come down before it falls on the power line. It’s the one in the center, leaning to the right.The wind even blew Jenny’s head off. The other deer were quite confused by this headless deer. But I’m the kind of person that always looks for the positive and again, we were very lucky there was no damage to the cabin, outhouse, shower tent or sheds. And tomatoes are fine and they loved all the heat and rain.
