Tree Becomes Barricade

All of southeastern Michigan got hit by some wicked winds late last night and on into early this morning. The result of this is that we have trees down throughout the area.

The worst example of it is a large tree that was in front on 6267 Ashton, which is immediately south of Paul St. It came down early this morning in the winds. It is completely blocking the street as well as the sidewalk on the east side of the street.

I tried calling 3-1-1 to report it, but the call center is closed for the weekend. I'll call again on Monday morning. We'll see how fast this gets taken care of.

In the meantime, there are several other tree limbs that partially block portions of the streets. Those are small in comparison to the entire tree that is blocking both pedestrian and automotive traffic on Ashton. I noticed neighborhood residents clearing them up on their own this afternoon.
