And a neighbor's tree splintered in two even before hurricane Sandy arrived! Kenilworth's public works department was here in no time. I really mean no time! The crew showed up around 12:30 removed the entire tree plus the stump. Mind you it was in someone's front yard too! By the time I came back from visiting my dad around 1:30 ish, all of the tree remains were gone and so was the crew. Now that's what I call good service from a municipality. Imagine if this happened in LA, especially the San Fernando Valley. We would have been holding on the 3-1-1 line by the time Kenilworth workers came and went. For the past week I have been enjoying the fall foliage. Crimson reds, yellows and yellow-brown leaves. They are gorgeous, magnificent. Pictures cannot do them justice especially when the sunshine hits them a certain way. But sadly, Sandy has been blowing them off the trees one by one for the past few hours :( My colorful visual experience is over. Well, at least I'll keep my eyes on the road now instead of the leaves. Marianne
