Wow! That was some storm.

Ah, the old house. I remember the maple in the front yard (the one you had taken out shortly before the hail storm).

Liz--It was, indeed.

Bogie--You may not recall that, the large maple in front, a silver maple, and the two large silver maples in the back yard had started out as mere saplings. Doug & Lynn Stone had them growing along their driveway (on Woodlawn - 1968) and wanted rid of them. With our mostly barren yard (except for the trees along the creek), we were only too happy to have them. The saplings were probably about six feet tall and an inch in diameter at the time. The red maple and sugar maple trees in the back yard were gifts from your grandparents H. Mom had called our builder for the name of a reliable nursery, then called Hillside Nursery to order the trees and plantings for us. The red and sugar maples grew much more slowly and were not damaged by the storms. The silver maples, being fast growers, took a beating.
