The trunk of the big tree still stands at the right. Many Suffield roads were blocked in late afternoon on July 7 after a storm that brought spotty periods of strong gusts and heavy rain.

Kyler and Caysoe Gamere, 4 and 7 years old, explore wading on a blacktop beach near the Muddy Brook bridge on Stiles Lane. The brook had overtopped the roadway by about one foot earlier that Thursday afternoon, September 2, after rainstorm Ida passed by overnight.
