A few days ago I went down to Layton to do some work there. While there a big wind started to blow all over the state, but from the news, it seems that our little town was hit pretty hard. Around our old Carnegie Library is a lovely grove of trees. You can see in the picture below, the library is probably 1 1/2 stories high....and the trees are more than twice that tall. In the summer they have music concerts there in the shade of the trees. I suppose those trees must have all been planted about the same time, as they are all about the same height.
Here on the corner you can see that one of the trees was a casualty of the wind storm. When the top came off that tree it landed right on Main Street. By the time I saw it, it had been pulled up onto the lawn, and the next morning it was hauled away. That corner looks a little strange now when we drive by.
