Storm hits Mount Albion hard

ALBION – Mount Albion Cemetery is littered with fallen tree limbs. It’s a sad sight.

I think it could have been worse because I didn’t see any trees fully uprooted. But there are broken branches just about everywhere, especially in the older section of the historic cemetery.

But even a lot of the smaller trees gave out under the stress of the ice load.

Whenever we get a high wind warning or an ice storm, I usually think of Mount Albion and big trees planted more than a century ago. Despite all of the snapped off branches, I think the trees held up well with the latest assault from Mother Nature.
