The weekend rain and wind storm raised havoc with people above and below ground in the southwestern part of Connecticut.
While checking out the storm damage and seeing the “usual” powerlines down, trees on houses, and the maze of detours, I ran across a site I have never seen in my 35 years of covering storms.
I was driving down Newfield Avenue in Stamford when I saw this large pine tree lying down in a cemetery. Not an uncommon occurance in an area that was exposed to over 70 MPH wind gusts. What was uncommon, is that when the four foot diameter tree toppled over, it’s root system over the years had wrapped itself around a grave. So, when it went over, the headstone and grave were lifted several feet into the air still attached by the tree roots. Check out several images I made of the cemetery.
I bet the paranormal investigators would have a field day there.
