Dexter after the tornado

Since the tornado, Dexter-Pinckney Road has been closed, and a representative of the sheriff's department or the state police has been there 24/7 to control incoming traffic.  Representing GreenStreet Tree Care, I was given a pass a few days ago in order to provide a quote for someone on one of the hardest-hit streets. This picture is from along Dexter-Pinckney Rd. I've driven it hundreds of times, but this time it was seriously unfamiliar. The conifers had been toppled, while the deciduous trees still stood but were badly mangled. I felt completely disoriented.

  1. You're not the only one who is disoriented. I've lived at Portage 40+ years and went to Dexter Schools. So hard to see the damage.
