I was one of the lucky ones. The power went out October 29 during the night. I did get up when I heard a loud snap and saw the maple branch in the yard. No damage. My favorite dogwood had branches bent to the ground. I couldn't see beyond that to the box elder if it had crushed my lawn swing and my neighbors fence.
Started coming down around 2-2:30 pm. Wet sloppy snow.
The next morning it was very pretty. I headed out back to see...
and found a large broken branch. Fortunately it did not damage the neighbor's fence.
Why the whole thing didn't come down was beyond me. Look at the bend in that sucker!
