Minor Damage from Hurricane Frances

What we woke up to on Sunday, September 5th

Fortunately my car did not suffer a scratch because the outer branches softened the blow

A kind neighbor let me use his electric chainsaw which made the job much easier

After the cleanup is over.

In the backyard, palmfronds were blown down, ......

And one of the tall, thin palm trees broke right off at the base

The top snapped right off from the impact
