The Park, Storm and Trees

An early morning run often brings some interesting sights, but none more fascinating than those I encountered this morning. The remnants of the storm from last Thursday were strewn everywhere. Most notably tall trees were ripped from the earth with their roots exposed and some were torn in two with jagged trunks exposed as the tree tops fell to earth. The park crews had cleaned the path so its normal curve did not require any new swerves from me, but I marvelled at the power of nature and the change that ensues leaving the landmarks I had grown used to gone forever.
