Unfortunately, there's nothing funny about the damage those Acts of God created. These are images from the very next block after mine. It was impassible for 2 days until the Fire Department rolled through with their chain saws which drew quite a crowd of unlookers.
Everywhere I go in my area, there are signs of how nature can be destructive. I also read in the newspaper that a good samaritan who came to the aide of the lady who was crushed by the falling tree has died. He suffered a brain aneurysm and was pronounced brain dead over the weekend.
Judging by the kids I saw walking towards the college carrying their stuff, I would assume dorm residents are allowed back onto campus today. Also judging by the way people were jockeying for parking spaces this morning, classes also resumed though the gym and tennis courts are out of commission until repairs can be made.
Our power has been restored but my food budget is going to take a beating as everything has to be replaced due to spoilage. That's way ok in my book considering those poor families are making funeral arrangements. My heart goes out to them and others who have been affected by this event. Add them to your prayers tonight. Thanks!
