Storm clobbers Woodstock
A late afternoon storm swept through Woodstock, dumping inches of rain and felling trees.
The trees to the right are in front of the Harris Bank Drive-Thru on South Street at S. Madison St. Two large trees with shallow roots fell toward the south, away from the bank's building, and blocked South Street. (Click on the photo to enlarge it; then click on the Back button on your browser to come back here.) Fortunately, their tops did not reach all the way to the Bundling Board Bed & Breakfast, but it was close.
Other trees are down all over town, and streets are flooded. On the north side of town one car on Greenwood, west of Wheeler St., was submerged to its headlights. Another car, on Meadow Avenue, had water almost up to its headlights.
