The reservoir showed some signs of those 100 mph winds during our walk this morning. Most of the widowmakers left from the October snowstorm seem to have been shaken out of the treetops, and there are a lot of living branches down too. Some of the younger trees seem to have snapped off, and one large one broke off about 20 feet up its trunk.
The biggest loss was this:
A massive conifer has fallen directly over one of the main trails that follow the bank of the reservoir. Unfortunately its location at the water's edge did not result in a stable root structure. It was hit by the wind and simply uprooted.
As you can see, its trunk is about two feet in diameter.
I'm not sure what the mountain bikers are going to do. This is one of the main trails that they use and it is now totally blocked to wheeled traffic. Getting around the tree is difficult enough on foot. So far I've only seen the water company clearing trees on the main access road. Hopefully they'll make an exception and clear this one too.
