Mother Nature: 1, Lincoln trees: 0
Sunday was not going to be a day of rest for many Lincolnites after a thunderstorm ripped through the city Saturday night, taking many trees with it.
Left in the wake of damage were many trees resting on roofs, trees blocking entire streets (including 16th Street south of the capitol) and trees downing power lines.
(Ironically, tomorrow the City Council will be holding a public hearing on the city budget, which would eliminate the city forester position.)
