We had a bit of nasty weather on Saturday, September 7th. A couple of severe thunderstorms tore through town. We had a bit of a blow on the salt marsh, but in town we had a bit more damage. Coming along 133/1A in town we lost a 63 year old Pin Oak tree that was in front of the Whipple House. The tree actually uprooted and fell into the road, which is the major route through Essex County.
The tree was cut and dragged to a side street.
The Massachusetts Forest Fire District Patrol came by to help clear the sidewalk and the street.
In order to give you an idea of how big this tree was, the tall tree shown here is one of its siblings.
Be sure to visit Skywatch Friday this week.
