35.  Rows of … Fallen Trees

1 Comment

This past weekend we braced for Hurricane Irma as it appeared that Sarasota may be in its path. Wind and rain pelted our homes Sunday night.  On Monday many of us dealt with power outages. As ours came back on, Tuesday my mother was ready to return to her home. As we took a ride down the newly opened Lorraine Road, we saw rows of uprooted newly planted trees. 

  1. As we drove from Lakewood Ranch, to Sarasota, out to Siesta Key, and then through downtown Sarasota, we noticed that most of the destruction left behind was fallen newly planted trees that had not been established yet and also older mature trees.  This row of trees will be easy to set right up again, but many many trees did not fair so well in our neighborhoods. And now the clean up begins.

  1. Glad you are safe. It is hard to imagine what it must have been like.
