Last Tuesday's storm was a wicked one. It reminded me a bit of the July and August storms last year with the exception of the rainfall.
In Glendale, we got a huge wind gust that did harm to one of our trees. The wind ripped off a large branch and knocked it right across my driveway!
Here is the punchline. We called 911 and 311 for 15 minutes and we COULDN'T GET THROUGH. Then we called the 104th precinct DIRECTLY and they said they would "send a car out" (we are still waiting). The fire department did arrive later that evening to do nothing but OBSERVE THE TREE. And finally, we called the parks department this morning since it would be under their direct jurisdiction, and we were told that they would be here WITHIN 45 DAYS and it is not a guarantee at that!!! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THIS CITY!!!
Hey Alex, Check out this street tree accident. And this was taken on Monday, a day BEFORE the storm!
