COEUR D'ALENE -- Neighbors in Coeur d'Alene continue to rebuild after last weekend's wind storm.  50 m.ph. wind gusts uprooted several massive trees.  Those trees landed on two homes and smashed three cars.

The neighborhood is beginning to clear after people invested hundreds of hours cleaning up.  What was once a blockade of uprooted tree debris is now a passable road.  A small army of neighbors armed with chain saws cleared the street.

Adam Kammarcal's Chevy Tahoe was smashed by a tree.  Now he and four of his neighbors spend five hours a day clearing the mess.

"We split all the wood, cut everything up and basically trying to clean everything up," said Kammarcal.

During the wind storm, a massive tree fell onto a house.  Now it is a pile of wood in the front yard.  Across the street, Adam said the clean up has been a team effort.  It is a goal neighbors are close to completing.

"We're going to have a barbeque once all the wood is picked up and celebrate it that way," said Kammarcal.
