While there aren't any ashes from which the legendary Phoenix can rise, there is a lot of rubble. And from that rubble a pair of osprey appeared.
Perched on our neighbor's dead tree is the beginning of a nest.
Looking up at the nest you can see various building materials
(I'm talking actual human building materials like tar paper, a piece of tin roof, insulation...).
So despite the loss of so many old trees, there was one good thing that came from it.
I spent most of my time looking over at the nest and wandering over to take photos of the new neighbors.
Hearing the telltale cry of the osprey made me smile.
And I enjoyed watching the pair continue to bring various pieces of sticks, branches and building material to add to their modest abode.
So, yes, bad things happen like devastating tornadoes, but there are good things that happen as a result.
