Seven-Years Ago (14-March-2010) — New Jersey

Backyard Late-Winter Nature in New Jersey. Nor’easter Aftermath.

Unlike the nor’easter today with lots of snow. Seven-years ago the ground was saturated with water, and I lost several trees due to wind. This was before Hurricane Irene or Sandy. The power was out for several days and I ended up living in my RV (that had a propane generator). I was fortunate that none of the trees that went down hit the house.
