Aftermath

We spent the weekend cutting down broken branches and stacking them on the curb. A neighbor helped Brian cut the trunk of the fallen oak into logs.

The neighborhood is full of broken trees, and many are much worse than ours. At least our live oak trunk fell onto the lawn. Many others fell over on electrical wires, cars and even houses. And it didn't totally uproot. Two of the three trunks are still erect. The poor tree is not quite as majestic as it used to be. It looks a bit odd, and has a large wound (on the right side of the tree, out of sight in this photo), but I think it will probably be all right. We were lucky.
