A Mighty Wind

The aftermath of last night’s storm:

One huge tree branch came down on my roof

and another huge branch snapped and is dangling a few feet off the sidewalk.

I can’t say for certain, but from what I can see it looks like the house is okay.

I went around the neighbourhood this morning surveying the damage.

This street was probably the worst – a huge limb broke off this tree completely blocking the street…

and crushing this vehicle under it…

which, it turns out, belongs to an old actor friend of mine I hadn’t seen in years.

I missed all the excitement – I was at a friend’s housewarming party in another part of town getting sloshed on tropical drinks in his basement tiki bar.
