Three tall pine trees were blown over by Hurricane Sandy Monday afternoon1. The next day we surveyed the damage:

The kids were shocked when they looked out the window at the top of the back staircase and saw a tree resting against it!

We began cutting down that tree because it was also resting on the garage.

And Ella did what she could.

RAnn, it was strangely humid a day afterwards, turning even to a damp chill.

MzEllen, she was the most earnest of the kids at helping us.
