March Tempest

A March tempest roared through Westchester over the weekend, taking down trees, ripping down powerlines, flooding yards leaving many homes struggling to deal with its fury- flooded basements, damaged homes and power outages. I saw two homes with trees crashed through them and curiously noted that they were both Pines. Apparently evergreen trees that carry their foliage are heavier and therfore more likely in rain soaked and windy conditions to fall. I did see another tree- maybe an apple tree uprooted and toppled over due to the thawed snow and and rain drenched soil allowing the winds to unearth it- but the huge Pines crashing through houses- yikes and duly noted.
