Fallen Limbs Surround

Irish Hill House, Cars

Amy Tivy, a Bassett nurse who lives on Irish Hill, stands by her Mini Cooper that had a rear light nicked in Monday night’s thunderstorm.  It was lucky it wasn’t worse, as the oak to the right snapped as a gust of wind swept through Cooperstown’s upper Main Street at about 5 p.m.  The bigger tree fell on the maple, at left, which is homeowner L.C.’s favorite, but missed the house by just a few feet.  L.C., an anesthetist nurse, previously lived in the Carolinas, and said this week’s storm was a bad as any hurricane she experienced down there.  Josh Howard of Josh’s Tree Service, Burlington Flats, in right photo, was finishing the cleanup a mid-afternoon today.   (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
