As one who has witnessed nature's wrath on trees I can sympathize fully; good story.
Pictured is a huge banyan tree uprooted by Hurricane Wilma in 2005. The city chose not to replant the banyans but has planted oaks instead. That road which was like a tunnel of banyans will never look the same as before Wilma.

A sobering reminder of a devastating storm that came uncomfortably close to us here in south central MO. Let's pray for a milder winter this time around...

Thanks. Yes, it made mine hurt too; all nature groaned that month.

Its been several months since the tornadoes destroyed several of my favorite stores in Tuscaloosa. There is still one huge area near the University campus that is flattened and bulldozed. But most of all, the huge trees are gone along 15th St and University Blvd. Even still after several visits there is a spirit of great loss when you visit business and people's homes who were narrowly missed by the April devastation.

Maybe recovery will come when new stores are built, but there is no replacing the stately old oaks that once lined those streets. 100 years of history just blown away.

Thanks to all who came by the hundred's to lend a truly helpful hand -- including President and Mrs. Obama.
