On my walk to work today, I noticed another tree that fell into a house, on the opposite end of the street.
Within 10 minutes of biking, I knew that there was no way that class was still going on though. Firemen and policemen were all over the place on practically every block. Traffic was a mess, and everyone was confused because the winds blew the traffic lights sideways and no one knew which light corresponded with them:

She emailed this morning, saying: "My dad has been sitting outside looking at the tree right up against our window for like 3 hrs just trying to figure out the puzzle of how to get it down without breaking any windows..."
Hopefully things will be cleaned up/repaired soon for everybody. Internet, tv, phones and electricity for all!
