    The last few days have been calm, but the two weeks before that were a different story.  We had one big storm after another pummel us here at the coast.

    I snapped these out the window of the car as we were driving to Raymond.  These are normally fields–not lakes or bays!

    But the real damage was from the wind.  Because we have a lot of rain and a high water table, trees here don’t put down very deep roots.
