The heavy 5 inches of rain and the winds that followed, seemed to have come to an end. Only light misty rain today. Damage to the forest continues to be assessed. The tree loss count in in the 5-7 range. Sadly they are mostly living trees hit by wind or wind and sift sandy soil. The two large dead trees we spot are still standing tall.
Given the size of this group we may just remove the more burnable branches and leavers and let the trunks become forest soil eventually. They were meant to end that way.
I must check on the chainsaw and get it ready to help. On its last legs but should be ready for some effort.
