|These trees branches were a mess from Sandy|
|The color of this tree just left me speechless|

I wanted to go for a walk Saturday to get away from the computer. It was a beautiful Fall day and I was headed to the track but a football game was being played. So I went to the river walk. I was in awe by the scenes I found there. Between the beautiful colors still around the dam you could also see damage Sandy brought to it. Some of the damage you see here was caused by the March Floods from 2+ years now in Rhode Island. But many more trees were down from Sandy.
It was so beautiful and pristine when this walk was first built not that long ago. It is such a shame to see it with downed trees and not being worked on. Maybe some volunteers could come together and begin a clean-up. We are forecast to get more heavy rains and wind this upcoming week. I sure hope the folks still reeling from Sandy can be spared this dreaded forecast.
Did your area get many trees down from Sandy's path?
