Fresh firewood: Victor Parpalov tosses a section of wood cut from a locust tree that fell into the street near the corner of Broadway Avenue and Chestnut Street in Spokane. Strong winds, reaching 46 mph, split the trunk, causing a blockage of the westbound lane. Jamie Lunceford, top center, and Ray Clarry, right, with the Spokane Street Department, section the limbs and leave the wood for Parpalov to use as firewood. (Dan Pelle)
