Beryl's little gift
Yesterday we got a visit from the second tropical storm of the season, Beryl. The storm formed due east of us and plodded ashore on Sunday night. Luckily she was never at hurricane strength, but she did do some damage. One of our neighbor's trees shed a huge branch over the fence. Janie went out with some hand tools and got to work. I joined her later and got after some of the heavier branches that she couldn't reach or saw at. We both hauled the waste to the curb. As fate would have it, it was yard waste pick up day and, within two hours, all of it, 5 feet high and 20 feet long, was gone. My neighbor had been away and when he got home he took his chainsaw to the rest and now we have only a bent fence to show that it happened.
