Submitted by BrainMountain: These are some pictures of downed trees in my road the morning after it snowed 8 inches last October. before it snowed there were still many green leaves on the trees, though most had already changed color. but the fact that they were there allowed more snow to build up on the branches, and snap them like toothpicks. the power went out about 6:30 PM on the Saturday it snowed. and didn’t come back on until the fallowing Friday night at about 11 PM.
