An update to my September 3 post: the tree that landed on my car during Hurricane Gustav was a pecan, carya illinoensis, probably a good 80 feet tall and over 100 years old. Tree and debris were cleared from the car today, after some wrangling with insurance companies and arrangements with extremely helpful and responsive Pointe Coupee Parish officials. I'll head up there tomorrow to view the damage, take some photos, salvage what I can and wait for the insurance inspector to determine if my vehicle is a gone pecan. For those outside the reach of the local dialect, that's pronounced "gawn puh-CAWN ," ya heard me?
