October 2011 storm named Albert left our region in a shambles for weeks. Heavy wet snow came down onto trees that still had their leaves. The resuting downed limbs, trees and power lines left roads impassable and hazardous. The average time without power was about two weeks because substations and main stations were knocked out. My little neighborhood was fortunate because we didn't lose power except for 2 hours when the electric company brought it down to do repairs at the main station. This was when I discovered another advantage to living within a block of a hospital. Two weeks earlier I had learned about short ambulance rides when I had fallen and broken my arm. The photos are from my street - the top shows what had been a beautiful Japanese Maple and the bottom is the neighbor who's tree that is. Amazingly the tree survived although a large section of it is gone. Page maps sketch #3, Hoarders Journaling swings out to be read.
