Saturday Snapshot: Uprooted Tree photos, saturday snapshot Dec 022017 One of the many uprooted trees in my area that Irma caused Saturday Snapshot 12 Responses to “Saturday Snapshot: Uprooted Tree” bermudaonion (Kathy) says: December 2, 2017 at 10:48 AM That’s sad. Reply Vicki says: December 2, 2017 at 12:36 PM I agree Kathy. There are still a lot of brush and tree limbs piled along roads too. And I’m also still seeing piles of house contents waiting to be picked up. Irma and the flooding made a mess of things and it may take a while longer to get it all picked up.

Some of the damage is irreversible. Thanks for sharing a photo that illustrates the force of hurricane winds. I hope you and your family were not seriously affected. My Saturday Snapshot post features a hike among giant rocks! Reply Vicki says: December 3, 2017 at 2:44 PM l’ve been through a lot of hurricanes since I moved to Florida 30 years ago. But I think Irma did more damage in my area than the others. Lots of damage to houses, nature, and the river a mile from me overflowed a lot. And of course the electric was out for about 2 weeks, but that’s happened before. A lot of progress has been made but there’s a lot of cleanup that still needs done. Reply bill burke says: December 2, 2017 at 3:32 PM That’s a big tree. I can’t imagine the conditions that made it happen. Never been affected by hurricanes but have experienced a few earthquakes and they are scary enough. Reply Vicki says: December 3, 2017 at 2:46 PM The wind was crazy. I have a Mitsubishi Mirage and I kept it in the garage because I was afraid the wind would send it flying. I’ve been through earthquakes too, I used to live in California. I don’t know what is scarier. Reply Tina says: December 3, 2017 at 7:55 AM Wow! We only had one large tree go down and it’s starting to blend into the pasture and perimeter, making homes for birds and mice I guess. Reply Vicki says: December 3, 2017 at 2:33 PM The birds would be ok and I guess the mice would be too if they stayed in the tree 🙂 Reply Beth F says: December 4, 2017 at 7:19 AM YIkes! Reply Vicki says: December 4, 2017 at 12:58 PM Yes, that storm caused a lot of yikes! Reply Klara S says: December 5, 2017 at 2:38 PM I know that hurricanes are bad things, but this photo is great. Reply Vicki says: December 5, 2017 at 2:59 PM As soon as I saw it I thought “that would make a great photo”!
