My son and his wife have ducks, chickens, goats, etc. and the wind was so strong that the chickens who were facing away from the wind laid the same egg multiple times. Yep, there ain't nothing between us and the north pole except a few strands of barbed wire and that type of fence doesn't slow the wind up much at all.
The wind sure does trim the dead limbs and branches out of the trees. We have a big limb that fell from a tall oak and is being suspended by brush and bushes. That is dangerous for any person or creature that wanders under it. After it calms down, I may go out and see if I can pull that large limb down. It is fairly large, I would say it is about six or seven inches in diameter.
I took this first picture to show the thick brush where it landed. If you look closely, you can see it in the middle of the picture.
Then I zoomed in on it. As you can see, it is fairly large and I sure wouldn't want to be under it when it finally falls to the ground. Of course that may take a long time for it to fall or maybe it will just stay where it is until it rots away. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
