More Damage Yet

In spite of the fact that this island in Parcel 6 was staked before the snowstorms to protect the curbs, our snow removal contractor, Longford Landscapes, drove their equipment up onto the island, knocking out the Belgian block.

This corner was also staked but the plow drove through the Belgian block—and the stake.

The plows piled the snow so high on the island that two bottom branches of this flowering cherry tree were buried. The heavy snow snapped the branches, perhaps destroying the whole tree. It's hard to believe so much damage was done in one small area.
