She sent along some pics of the damage in one of the neighborhoods where a bunch of trees were knocked down:
What a shame. Just last year, the township had planned on knocking down those very same trees because their roots were damaging the streets and sidewalks. My brother-in-law (a real "Dean in 2004" supporter [note: original post said "Dean in 2000"]) organized a community protest that saved most of the trees. Now, mother nature accomplished what the municipal authorities could not.
And we think the federal legislation can stop global climate change? Good luck.
