Rafael Martinez stops to look up at the tall trees surrounding his property as he cleans up debris from a pair of 60-foot-tall trees that fell in his neighbor's back yard on 16th Ave SE in Lacey, just missing both houses on Saturday, Aug. 29, 2015. "It was really howling through here this morning. I'd never seen it so strong," said Martinez, who was in his front yard cleaning up a fallen branch when the two trees tumbled.
