We had an intense storm last night and I'm still cleaning up the mess. The wind and rain blew so hard that the trees bent over 90 degrees and I could not see the road. Wow, that was amazing!!!

The county road was completely blocked off by nearly a dozen trees, some of them were huge, no getting around them. No wonder it was so quiet this morning. Nobody drove by all morning. lol Enjoy the storm pictures as I gift my time to my neighbours by cleaning up the road!

Hauling it back to the yard for firewood! There are some benefits for helping neighbours. :)

I had to trim it just so that the quad could pull it.

Still headed west, cleaning up as I go. Another bunch of trees beyond this one yet.

This is far as I go. Not sure if there are trees down over the hill, but somebody else can step up. Headed east now.

Small tree here and a spruce tree up ahead, blocking my neighbour from getting to the highway.

I'm not done yet, as I had to take a break. It's a lot of work clearing trees after a storm.
