For those who have not been through a hurricane, one of the things you notice after it passes is the shear amount of small debris. This consists of leaves and twigs scattered everywhere on the ground. The amount of this debris on the ground means that during the storm, the air was filled with it. While it appears harmless on the ground, when propelled by Hurricane winds, even small objects can cause injury to a person outside.

Even a few feet away, there was worse damage but this is one of the little things that people overlook. I will post more photos of the damage in my neighborhood, but this was the only what that did not need any post processing; it is straight from the camera, even if it is a year-and-a-half late.

You can see the road curving as it goes up hill. Because of that I have posted it to the Curvy Roads theme.
