The storm briefly spawned a tornado today, a rare occurrence in November in these parts. Violent winds lashed my street, felling 300-year-old oaks. The neighborhood became a maze of deadends where block after block, giant trees criss-crossed the roads. Some had fallen onto houses while others had knocked down power lines.
The fire and rescue units were out in force to assess the injuries caused by the storm, and from a distance, between a clutch of paramedics, I saw a body on the ground. It was small and still and on it someone had laid a white sheet.
