A cool front came behind the storm last night, meaning that there will be a cool spell for the next few days. It seemed important to start cleaning up the tree before the summer heat hits. And the summer bugs…
All the boys spent some time scrambling up and down the limbs. Dh measured the tree – 75 feet tall it was, and he figured out precisely where it would have hit the house if it had fallen the other way. And we were then glad again it had not.
Every camera in the house has been documenting the process… and every chainsaw is sitting ready to go. It will not be the typical mother’s day here… but it is a day of my family working together, being together, pulling together – and really, isn’t that what every mother wants?
Here are some photos from this morning.
