I did not see the actual fall, but was not surprised. More firewood for next winter. Another section of deer fence to repair! We also lost the lovely little wild fruit tree down at the dock. It was such a little tree, but its roots had sat in the brackish water too long. It had provided many lovely little white blossoms each spring, but will do that no longer.
During the noon of Tuesday, long after Sandy had checked out and checked in up North creating more disaster, I went down to the dock at high tide. The little dock platform on the right was not even visible. Still this flooding was not as horrible as it could have been.
But I think the biggest surprise was when I opened the front door just before the tree fall and saw my old Mazda with its sad expression. I had clearly neglected it way too much after the purchase of my new car. While my new Camry sat safe and comfy in the garage, the Mazda was left outside in the wind and rain. I stood in the doorway and saw the Mazda which sat like a small wet mammal wanting to come in and dry off! It had ruined the lawn in its crossing I noticed.

Sandy does not have a driver's licence and you should see what she had done to other cars!)
