Mark Hunter posted this photo on Facebook (which we are reusing with this permission). He writes, “Update on the (Oakhurst) village. A very large tree fell on the power lines in front of McGowan’s about 45 minutes ago. West Hill is blocked. Crews are on site as of about 10:00 and are currently in the tree cutting it down. But it’s bound to take a while. Power poles on both sides were damaged, so the utilities crews will have to get at them once the tree is removed and the area made safe.”

From Larry Holland:
Associate Editor Dena Mellick sent us these. She said, “The same house on Lockwood Terrace in Decatur Heights that had a tree come down in November had a tree come down today on top of a car. This was our November photo from this story. The homeowner had a professional out giving estimates on removing the fallen tree and the one still standing. She was concerned the roots may have been compromised and could fall on her neighbor’s house. She said in a neighborhood post that two arborists had previously said the tree was healthy and didn’t have to be taken down.”
James Frank Battey says, “Bodhi is available to rescue anyone near Westchester Elementary. Sorry, no brandy keg.”
Tory Heller says, “My husband and I moved from Chicago to Decatur 8 months ago. Our first Georgia snowman.”
