The storm last night saved me about $300. Back behind the chicken coop is a basswood tree that had three large limbs broken off in last July’s storm. Although they were still mostly upright last week, I had meant to call the tree service over the past few months because it seemed dangerous to have so many unstable limbs high up in the air.
We had a big thunderstorm wind gust last night and it put all three limbs on the ground. Now, it’s a self-service job – all I have to do is drag them to the ground with the chain and tractor and then cut them up. It must have been after we were asleep as we didn’t notice – it also blew over the gas grill on the patio.
