More tree troubles.

So, by now you all know about our problematic oak tree with it’s broken off limb. (Well, you should. I have mentioned it enough.)

Well, two weeks ago we had a storm blow through and the mighty oak was struck by lightning, and split into two all the way to the ground. Now, this was a 120ft tree, that was maybe 30 feet from the house. After a number of calls to the area tree services, and had a couple of sleepless nights, we finally had someone come out and down the tree for us. (Here they are trying, in a not so subtle way, to coax the tree down in the right direction.)

He told us afterwards that he had to chain the tree back together in several places just to make sure it all came down where it was intended.

So, we now have a great big mess to clean up. 

P.S. School starts on the 11th. I cannot wait.

    I’m glad the tree came down safely!! No more worrying about branches falling! 🙂

    Those pesky trees…
    Hey, it could be worse, you could have moved to Iowa the land with NO trees (& apparently no a/c).
    Glad to hear it all went as planned and glad to hear school starts in a week. 🙂

    Hooray for Back to School! LOL.
