It got really windy for a short time today and a tree in our backyard blew down. That is the second tree we lost in the past month or so. Only in Virginia would trees just blow over in your backyard, without a hurricane or tornado or anything. Granted, our backyard is natural woods and some of the trees are dying a natural death, but it still seems weird to me! We almost lost our screen tent, too, which Hannah and/or Steven (depends on who you ask) left out in the woods. Luckily, it had blown up against the back fence and a holly tree, but hadn't ripped. It must be pretty sturdy because those holly trees are very prickly.
