We had power poles and trees down all over town. Here is the damage to the trees just at my neighbors. Since nobody lives in these houses anymore, I was out with my chainsaw this evening cleaning them up:

Careful with that chainsaw, you remember what you did with a knife, well this thing has an engine. lol You could use that Cedar tree for som nice Crappie holes.
Glad you and the family are okay. You already know why they say "Keep your eyes on the horizon" don't forget to duck when you have to. Ferdi aka Fred

Not sure Fred. I would love to make a trip down there but right now im raising money trying to get soldiers several places to hunt and will be building deer stands and putting up feeders and putting wheel chair ramps on the deer stands. Several people have put up items for 24 hour auctions on the Texas huting forum and are doing a great job in helping so im staying pretty busy for a while lol.

Here are a few pictures of the gravity wave damage that happened here just a couple weeks ago. Nobody was hurt, just alot of property damage.
