The Wrath of Ike

Today I was working on this

when it started to get windy ..... very windy. Several times I had to run down these steps to take cover. Especially when this happened.

Later, when standing in the kitchen I saw our pear tree come down. This was a shame because it was finally producing pears that were bigger than a walnut. Just this week Deborah asked how we could get the pears off that were at the top of the tree.

I'd say it is no longer a problem!

Guess what I'll be doing for the next few weeks ....

Too stinking ironically funny. I'm writing my own post about what the wind did to my trees this past evening. And to my fence, and a big chunk of my garden. Looks like it hit you four or five hours before it hit me.

That's too bad about the pear tree. But for a minute there I thought you were going to say it blew away all your cellar door bulkhead work!

What a shame about the pear tree. Glad you all survived though!

I am staring out the window at my Gustav battered tree and I am in New Orleans
