a hat provides scale for the 100 yr old Douglas fir that fell in the early morning hours, Sunday, nov 22, 2009

100 year old tree is uprooted by storm

A 90 foot, 100 year old tree fell early sunday morning, missing a house by about 15 feet. The tree took out another tree on it's way to the ground, deflecting it from nearby residences and avoiding any damage. A flock of geese was heard above the roaring wind, blowing thru the Longview area at about 50 miles per hour. I would suspect the geese were wishing they had taken an earlier flight!
