the June hailstorm and windstorm broke off the third-largest chestnut tree in Oregon, knocked down timber from Wendling Road, up over the ridge below Bunker Hill and touched down through Hileman Road where it had hurricane force winds and snapped off this beautiful tree. It has been cleaned up and pruned by a neighbor Jeff Cantrell who used to climb the tree and play in it as a kid & who did a wonderful job to help this tree survive. The hail picture was taken out of my front door, quarter sized hail covered the ground in a five minute window, stripping the garden and the leaves off of the trees. 4 inches of rain came down immediately after we ran out and water bard the driveway before losing all of our gravel, diverting 5 inches of water running down the driveway. Last time I seen it get that dark that quick was in 1977 with the eclipse of the sun viewed from the parking lot @ LCC.
