Storm Safety Alert: Beware Falling Branches in Brooklyn. Soggy Snow's Snapping Limbs

By February 13, 2014

Follow me on:

Beware snow-laden branches! Heavy winter storms can snap tree limbs like fresh peas across leafy Brooklyn. About a year ago, during another huge snow storm, I saw two big limbs perched atop of cars, and jumped when I heard a third tree limb"crack"  and then crash right behind me while walking down the street. Guess the weight of the snow can be too much to bear.

Anyway, watch out. Falling tree branches are dangerous.  The weather report is calling for 20 mile per hour winds. Maybe I'll wear my bike helmet out to dinner for Valentine's Day.

What's that tree limb doing on top of my car?
