Hartley Nature Center's executive director: it almost looks like a blowdown

Hartley Nature Center is closed for the remainder of this week, after straight line winds in excess of 70 mph caused "trees down everywhere" in the park, blocking trails, damaging the nature playscape and the yurt and leaving Hartley still without power almost a week later.  It's a possibly hazardous - and definitely expensive situation as Hartley staff and the city continue to assess the damage and decide what happens next.

The yurt at Hartley did have a wood-burning fireplace. Firewood is one thing Hartley will NOT be short of in the months and years to come
