Bad Storm - Carolyn Pappas
This is a sketch I made last month while visiting Greenfield, MA but I forgot to post until now. There are lots of beautiful big trees around the area, and I was so sad to hear that a lot of trees that were down as a result of a massive thunderstorm that barreled through last Wednesday night. Last I heard, there were still some people with no electricity on Sunday. I don't think that anyone was hurt, but I know that a few people narrowly missed being squished in their beds when a tree trunk came through their roof. I went up there this past weekend and got to see some of the damage, but didn't get to make any sketches unfortunately. There were huge trees snapped in half like toothpicks. I'm sure it will take a long time to clean up the area so there will be plenty left once I make it up there again.
