7 years ago lightning wrecked a great tree in my front yard. I cleared it and one part remained. For 7 years I nurtured it back to be a decent bit of shade, then along comes a damn cyclone today and ripped the guts out of it. We didn't fare too badly, it was only category 2 but some serious damage occurred elsewhere. Just finished repairing my fences and tomorrow its tree resurrection again.
Got to love living in the tropics…….

I know the feeling…and feel your pain
I've had a nice big elm split twice by hurricanes,
have cut/trimmed/pampered it back twice,
growing some Queen Palms to fill in the shade
missing from the now quite skinny Elm,
12 years of good growth, finally look great,
and the damn freak freeze we had this winter looks to have killed the palms…
New Orleans, sub tropical with freezes…
glad you made out OK!

I felt sorry for it today so tried to give it a makeover, it looks like a monk's tonsure now…..
I've actually got three palms under this one growing through, luckily we don't get the cold though. But I feel your frustration!
Now find out we could have another one next week…maybe I'll give it a buzz cut in advance.

Glad to hear that you're all right. Went through one or two of them myself,April 3 1974,an EF(Enhanced Fujita Scale )-0 or EF-1 in the neighborhood I grew up in. Hopped over my family's house,no damage,but some neighbors lost shingles,sheds,siding. A nearby neighborhood,Sayler Park(near Cincinnati) got hit with an EF-4 suffering heavy damage and casualties,and Xenia,Ohio with an EF-5,and killed dozens or more,most notably at the local high school. Was almost 11 y/o then.

And there were a couple more reported south of Columbus,OH and in the Xenia vicinity last Tuesday.
