Ouch

April 17, 2013

From the “Keep your head down in a storm” category :

The dual 2″ galvanized steel pipes that held up the bat house appear to have been hit directly by the big piece that ended up in the trees in the background.

The wounded bat house is resting against the damaged shed near where I found it.

Also, the greatly reduced blackberries are in the next bed back adjacent to the trellis post that “survived” (sort of).

In spite of all this mess, I’m guessing that I have 75% of my summer bed space ready for their plants and am closing in on the rest. Back to true gardening posts soon…..

    This all reminds me of the microburst we had in back of our apartment in Little Italy, which split a giant Tree of Heaven in half and had branches littering our fire escapes. When it struck I was at home, and I jumped up and ran away from the windows and into my (interior) bedroom, hollering in alarm and hearing the rest of the building’s inhabitants doing likewise. I’d never seen the big tree whip around like that, even in severe thunderstorms. And the wreckage filled our courtyard (30 x 50 feet).

    It’s a Batman Bat house. That is (was) awesome.

      “Was” is the key word in your comment. 😦
