Still, it was an older tree, that sort of thing happens. THEN I got down to the lake. There is an area about 20 - 30 feet wide where the small trees that were there are chewed up like a giant lawn mower ran over them. A pine there is snapped off at about 9 feet with the rest in three big chunks that are kinda leaning against each other. On the other side of the canal that links our small pond to the larger lake there aren't even any limbs down.
I'm no expert but it looks to me as if a small twister lightly touched down before skipping off again. Thank God it was back there and didn't come close to my camper. I am so glad not to have come home to a repeat of Francis.
