Irene Drops Giant Locust Tree In Our Front Yard

A tree behind the yard of Tim and Diane Fudge was knocked over by Hurricane Irene. The Fudge house - our old house - then Lee Schilling's brick house are in this picture. Friend George Taylor is standing on the right of way of Catawissa Street. Since we moved in 2004 - Tim and Diane installed the new white deck shown in the picture. The tree just turned it into a "sun deck."

Lots of rain - then some wind - pulled the locust tree up by the roots.

Tamaqua received lots of rain and wind from the storm. Thousands lost their power - some will be without power for a few days.
