My favorite tree in the world just went
down as the winds of Hurricane Sandy
ripped through NYC.

I feel particularly sad because this tree was the inspiration for one of my stories, called "Old Man Oak."
It can be found here:  click
What made this tree so special, aside from its size, is that it had unique "personality." It is the only tree I have ever seen that only lost half of it's leaves in the Autumn.  That's right! One part of the tree lost the leaves by December. The other part of
the tree kept its leaves until February or March. I never could figure out why, but it was that way year after year.

Good bye dear old friend-- You will remain in my heart and in my story.
