Whose Woods Are These I Think I Know – Adams Maple Mountain Spring Storm 2014 by Kathy Adams

April 14, 2014

A spring storm hit Saturday night, April 12, 2014 in Mecosta County that did wide-spread damage to many in the area.  Thousands are without power and will probably be out for another 3 or 4 days.  Trees are down all around town, barns have fallen, homes are damaged, flood waters are taking out many area roads, etc.

Fortunately, Adams Maple Mountain did not suffer much damage.  Our cabin just escaped when two large pine trees fell nearby.IMG_9387

Whose woods are these I think I know…

You can see the top of the cabin peeking through.

Blain’s bow stand did not make it through.

The bonfire pit also a disaster.

The sap trail is blocked by fallen trees.

And buckets are down.

Quite a few trees are down and most of the trails are blocked.

The property is littered with branches.

Road coming in is blocked as well.

Buckets down.

More downed buckets.

Or buckets filled with rainwater.

The creek is rushing and over full.

But truly we were blessed with God’s protection over us because we did not suffer any damage to the cabin, our home or barns, and we did not lose power!  Praise the LORD!
