I missed the storm. I left of the 3pm boat Tuesday. Captain Curt canceled the 5pm. He canceled all of Wednesday. I got back Thursday on the 4pm boat. No pictures, sorry. Your aunt - my mom, got a pacemaker installed. She now tick-tocks like the crocodile in Peter Pan.

There are trees on some cottages in the Pines. I'm going to look around today for more damage.

Mike, I see you had more important things to do... to be with your mom ..
The pacer should help her feel better .....Glad you were able to be with her

I hope the trees did not do much damage and hopefully there is no trees on our home .... Mom is thinking about getting some limbs trimmed, that would help to protect the house .....
Have a good winter and will be looking for pictures ..I love them Very Happy
your cousin

Mike.
Back at the end of October you posted that you had heard that the big storm had toppled trees onto cottages in the Pines. Did this information turn out to be true? Do you have any pictures of damage from that storm?

Thanks!

There are some luck people in the Pines. Ed Sandell had the top of a big white pine come down right where he usually parks his car, right between the birch bark houses. Wayne Babler Jr. had a big one come down close to his place too. The not so luck one was Don Blome at the Wiki-up. A big pine came down on his roof and punched a few holes in the roof. But, you could say he is lucky too. It could have been a lot worse.
