Y2 Day 21: Nature Is Terrible In Her Wrath
. . . until we were all awakened at 6:30 a.m. by the Public Works guy, who asked us to move Husband's car (which he parks in front of the house — directly under, and yet somehow unscathed by, our fallen tree).
We've known the tree would go someday, we've been treating its poor diseased self since we bought the house 14 years ago, but I think the power lines running through it have actually given it some support. But last night it bit the dust — and hully gee, what a sight!
Now I'm waiting for my foxy electrician to call me back, and tomorrow I'll call my tree guys to have the stump removed. And after our deductible, our insurance will pay for all of it. We just have to decide whether to plant another tree in that spot or continue the row of hedges — fun decision!
And, of course, there's tomorrow's other big event: I begin the official prep for my colonoscopy! I went shopping for supplies tonight and am SO EXCITED — but I'll report in detail tomorrow. Stay tuned!
