We were without power on Crest Avenue from about 7:30 on Friday evening until 1:00 AM Saturday, a brief period of five and one half hours. Others in Cheverly are still without power as I write. Although the power came back on early Saturday morning, I have been without cable, internet and telephone until just a few hours ago.
What follows is a pictorial of what I witnessed yesterday morning. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.
|At the height of the storm.|
|Someone lost their trashcan.|
|Another tree down. It seems to have been twisted off the trunk.|
|Tree down on Euclid Street tangled in the power lines.|
|Route 202 at the merge to 295 South|
|The cranes in the background are replacing a utility pole that fell across Route 202.|
|An uprooted tree in Cheverly.|
|A tree down on the power lines on Carlyle Street just feet from Crest Avenue.|
|A tangle of limbs and branches.|
|Some branches from the neighbors.|
|This gives you some idea of the size of what came down.|
|A tangled mess atop the garden shed.|
