Dear Mother Nature,
I happened to like that oak tree very much. But then you came along and had other ideas this morning with that whiplash crazy thunderstorm.
I am really sorry I hadn’t ripped the poison ivy off it yet, but sometimes I don’t get back into the woods enough with all of the gardening I do.
But seriously, Mother Nature, we take really good care of our trees and well this morning you just were wind and lightening vicious. I know I am VERY grateful nothing landed on the house, but I really liked that tree.
And now we have to clean it up. And I don’t think we can save what is left.
Maybe you are telling me the tree canopy needs adjustment, I don’t know.
But easy on my woods. This is the second tree this spring. And you got some of my little saplings today too.
Very truly yours,
Patch is reporting a fire at Church Farm School. I hope everyone is O.K. There are also trees down all over after the storms. My sources tell me Building 139 (cottage) with a quick knockdown by Sta. 5 &6. Will post updates as I receive them. Single building at 1002 Cottage Lane is what I was told.
Thank you Daily Local for following up:Church Farm School ‘Cottage’ in West Whiteland hit by fire during storm
WEST WHITELAND >> Firefighters responded to a blaze at the Church Farm School at about 1 p.m. Wednesday following a brief but intense lightning storm.
A passerby traveling on Route 30 called 911 after seeing flames and smoke at a cottage residence on the school’s campus. The cottage, which can hold up to 18 students, was unoccupied at the time. The Church Farm School held its commencement ceremony on Saturday, June 4.
West Whiteland Fire Chief George Turner said the building was likely struck by lightning during the storm Wednesday morning and smoldered in the attic of the building until flames erupted from the structure a few hours later. Turner said most of the damage was done in the attic.
East Whiteland has a Supervisors’ Meeting this evening. Did they send out the agenda a week ago? A couple of days ago? With reasonable notice to township residents?
East Whiteland Township sent out their monthly meeting agenda at 10 a.m. this morning. That is NOT truly open government or sunshine friendly.
And what do you get when you click on the link for the meeting agenda which should have been sent DAYS ago?
I tried it first on a tablet, then on a computer.
East Whiteland, what we have here is a failure to launch.
Question: Am I reading the sunshine laws right when it comes to meetings? Aren’t residents entitled to more notice than they normally receive?
Hmm People’s Light and Theater want to build a bigger bread box err banquet facility? Does that mean the food and service will improve? We gave up on the restaurant and trying them for holidays as it was not worth it no matter how lovely the setting.
Swedesford Square Apartment? Jesus H Christ East Whiteland are you TRYING to become King of Prussia overnight?
And Linden Hall? Why should they get waivers from anything? They can’t even restore one historic structure. Putting mesh fencing around it is not saving it. And those townhouses are tragically ugly and cheap looking.
