I think that the storms are over. The reward was this sunset.
I was sad to see that this plant had toppled over.

Between all the storms, and also having a class (online) Weds/Thurs, I didn't venture out until my dentist appointment on Friday. I left our newer neighborhood 'small tree' bubble. I was driving on a road that had a large park on one side and an older neighborhood on the right side. O.M.G. It just looked like such a disaster zone. Tree limbs and tree stumps and cut up trees just filled yards and lined up streets. The park had a lot of fallen trees that were clearly low priority because they weren't blocking roads. & I mean, I just drove by and saw a small glimpse of a very large park. This was 6 days after the big wind storm. There's still a lot of work to do.
I saw an estimation that 1,000+ trees fell in the city.
Saturday we had a big rain deluge. It didn't last long but caused a lot of street flooding. I am grateful it was short.
On New Year's I heard that was the biggest storm in 30 years, or during the time we have lived here. That just feels like "nothing" at this point, after all these mega storms the last couple of weeks.
Now it's on to sunny skies. Phew!
Note: Still storms elsewhere and a lot of snow expected in the mountains. But it sounds like the last storm or two will pass us by.
