Our area had 90 MPH winds
It was a huge black oak tree
It barely brushed against the garage....we were so lucky!
View from Terry's driveway....and the front of the house
This branch came off another tree that was hit by the fallen one
Terry called Jeff and he and the entire family were here in about an hour!
We all did a ton of work
Terry hauled the cut and split wood to the back yard....Jeff will get it when he needs it
The next morning we still had a lot to do
Jeff split all the wood that needed splitting
It takes him five strikes to split each one
Laura and the girls showed up for clean-up....Tessa and Jean manned the rakes....Loading the leaves....Jeff still splitting
Tessa got worn out....Chasing down a tree frog and taking it to the back yard
Less than 24 hours after the fall, the mess was cleaned up!
And the burning has begun
