Firewood, anyone?

We had a big storm on Tuesday and this is what I came to. This oak tree was over a hundred years old. The tree guys said it is about 10 cords of wood, so you want to stock up for the winter, give me a call. We can't really assess the damage until the tree is removed, but I really think we were fortunate that it wasn't worse.

We were on the NBC 11 o'clock news last night...
That fence leads to a 30 foot drop to an overflow canal. I am so grateful the tree didn't fall the other way and destroy the house. It missed the arbor by inches.

I had to drain the pool so the tree can be removed. Nice chaises, huh?

Dayna, my friend! That is craziness!!! I'm sad for you and the 100-year-old tree!!! I'll expect to see updates with Bain's holding axes standing in front of a huge pile of wood! :)

That's insane! You poor thing. As if life isn't hard enough when all is going well. So glad it didn't land on your house!!!! You guys could have been seriously injured.

Holy cow girlfriend! I am too far out of your loop that I didn't even know this. I'm so glad your house and your family are all okay!
