Arlington Storm Damage

Arlington Storm Damage   If you weren’t in East Arlington last week you may have missed the terrible storm damage from last Wednesday’s “micro-burst.”  According to local residents we spoke to, town employees and local tree companies did a super job – clearing downed trees and cleaning up in less than 48 hours.

“Micro” seems to be the wrong way to describe this freak storm.  In just minutes more than 100 trees were knocked over and countless branches broken in a large part of town – on both sides of Mass Ave from Walgreens to Route 16 .  It’s terribly sad and a huge loss to the local landscape and tree canopy. 

Urban trees have it hard enough under normal  weather conditions – or what passes for normal nowadays.  You could see evidence of this year’s drought around the uprooted trees.  The very dry exposed earth around several toppled trees looked more like sand than dirt.

My Dad and I drove around on Friday.  We wouldn’t have been able to drive through East Arlington just a day or so before – streets were littered with trees. There were still some downed trees  and branches that had yet to be cleared but it was amazing how much had been done in such a short period of time.  Kudos to all who worked so hard on the cleanup.
