Breaking News In Valley Stream

This 60 foot pine tree went over this afternoon, across the street from our house. High winds (gusts over 50 miles an hour) and soaking rains for the past 18 hours contributed to it's downfall. I sent these photos to Newsday but, with all the wild weather we've had today, I'm sure they have more dramatic photos to print. This was drama enough for us however.

Downed wires, of course.

The fire department arrived to block off the street.

All well and good now but will the tape be seen after dark?

No damage to the house and no one got hurt. Of course, getting in and out of the driveway might prove a tad tricky.
