Sorry for the spam to come. I gotta catch up so I can refer back to this.

So, we're at the end of some rather brisk Santa Ana winds. Some places were hammered with 100 mph winds, but it was just at the border of worrisome here. We had no damage to our trees but the yard is thick with eucalyptus leaves, twigs and boughs. For a while last night, it sounded like hail on the roof as it just kept raining tree debris on us. I did here a tree fall somewhere. It sounded big. And the power went off twice.

Now, to back track, on Oct 13 and 27 we had The Arborist come back. He, and his crew of six or seven, removed three trees, trimmed three others and cut up and hauled away that half of eucalyptus that fell a couple of years ago up in the north forty. And ground out two stumps, removed some St. Augustine grass and tidied up the front yard. It was a big hunk of money but it kept them very busy for two full days and a huge amount of plant matter went to the dump.

And I am so glad we did that before this wind storm hit. I'm sure two of the trimmed trees would have had damaged, if not fallen over.
