I know this is a tech blog, and I always try to stay on topic, but this storm continues to pull us all in so many directions ….
As I ventured out today, I brought my iPhone, and so (it’s a stretch ) all pics are iPhone-pics, and iPhone pics = blog material. Right? Right!
I decided to “escape” and go for a walk in one of my favorite spots in the Fall…. a cemetery that is hilly with many old stately trees. Colorful and gorgeous.
I expected some damage, but I wasn’t prepared for what I saw: death in the graveyard (I’ll explain at the end of this post)
Of course, Sandy didn’t leave anyplace untouched. I counted 8 glorious trees crashed to the ground. Many trees broken and torn. How sad.
And as I walked, I was TOTALLY startled to see this:
Around the downed treetop were dozens of dead crows! Look around the headstones in the picture, above. Do you see all those crows?
Were they nesting in the tree?
When the storm blew the tree down, couldn’t the crows just fly away?
Why did they all die when it fell?
Can anyone explain this to me?
