Wind & Rainy Day-June 22-14

Sunday- June 22,2014
It has been a wonderful Sabbath day but this morning we had the wind and the rain so hard it looked like you just dumped a bucket of water out and it puddles everywhere.  It is the fastest rain I have ever seen.
While we were in our meetings it blew down the tree across the street at the Seventies Hall.  Last year the lightening hit it and the first half fell and now the rest of the tree fell down.  Their is only the stump left.  It fell across the road and no one could drive down Parley Street but the missionaries cleaned it off the road at least.

 On Monday they'll clean up all the trees that were blown over.  Their must of been at least 3 or 4 trees and a lot of branches everywhere.  Here are the pictures of the trees.  These trees are hollow and rotten in the middle so they fall down very easy.


Here are some branches that need to be cleaned
up.  Across the road from this spot was in the back yard of Brigham Young's Home was a large branch that came down. The picture below is facing the shed that is behind Brigham Young's Home. It is amazing how the branches just snap and they are on the ground. Below is the same branch but looking the opposite way.  It is on the road and we have to drive around the tree.                                          
The tree below is just around the corner of the one above.

                                                                                                                                                                                          You can see that the middle of the tree is hollow and rotten.

The picture left is the bottom part and the right is the top of the tree.                                                                                                                 We did have another tree that fell over and landed on the back of an old home but I didn't get a picture of it.  The FM people were really busy cleaning up the trees, what a mess!!!
