Out like a lion

Notice the wind

I’m starting to think the two grand I spent last summer to take out three rickety old trees to the South of our house… was a good investment.

    I have to take down a couple of big Oaks before Hurricane season comes again..one is rotten at the base and the other has a lot of rot in the upper branches..I can have them taken down for five bills but it will take that much again to get them hauled..I may just have them taken down and haul them to the land fill myself when I am able to do so later.

    Looks like their wind chill calculator is off, given the winds are 46 mph.  That’s tropical storm strength, isn’t it?

    There is nothing quite like a large tree crashing through your house. I wasn’t home at the time, but it came within a couple of feet of taking out my mom. Money well spent indeed. My mom? Not a scratch. It missed the main structure, just grazing a corner, and took out a room addition with a wall in common to her bedroom. Strangely, there was not one broken pane of glass in the crushed room either (46 individual panes, including a book case).
