Nature's Beauty and Destruction

 These pictures are the result of a thunderstorm on Thursday, July 26, 2012 in Hallton, PA where our camp is.  Two trees came down in the storm.  Fortunately they fell onto the car and not onto camp.  We were able to lodge a log under the tree that was leaning onto the car to hold it up from falling any further and they backed the car out from under the tree.  Then we were able to clear a path and get the car out.  The tree that was on the car fell into another tree and lodged in the tree so it didn't fall totally on the car or it would have destroyed the car.  My brother in law was able to drive the car home.  The driver's side mirror is missing, the windshield is broken and the front fender is dented.   There is also a big dent in the door frame.  But the main thing is no one was hurt.  The car can be fixed or replaced.   It sure made for an interesting evening driving to camp dodging down power lines and trees and riding in the rain.

All these pictures below are
of our camp in Hallton, PA.  These
were all taken over Memorial Day
before any destruction was
done from the storms.
 These are three deer that were in my yard this morning 7/27/12 waiting for breakfast.  The two fawns were walking right up to me but then my cat came along and scared them away.    So great to see nature's beauty after yesterday's destruction.

  13. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Thanks
