…it was gone! The tree branch, that is!

July 18, 2019

  • I just wanted to put in a side note here that this is a continuation of my StraightWinds post.

My boyfriend was off work today, so we were able to take care of the fallen branch pretty quickly. If he had worked today, I would’ve trimmed it back as much as I could using the loping sheers and possibly the pole saw.It took us about an hour and a half.

I don’t know how, but this pole has survived an ice storm and now this tree branch. We used to have a clothes line here, but when we had the ice storm back in 2014, part of a tree took it out. This pole is all that’s left!

My boyfriend got to use his new Stihl chainsaw today for the first time!!

almost done!

Well, that’s it for pictures! After this photo was taken, I held the branch so my boyfriend could cut it without the chainsaw going into the ground and to keep it from moving.

I’m still amazed at how lucky we were yesterday! It could’ve been really bad. The storm came up on us that quick! One minute the sky was gray and there was a slight breeze but no worries! The next… we were running for the house! And it was all over before we knew it. I’m glad no major damage was done and no one was hurt.

“My wish is to stay always like this, living quietly in a corner of nature.”

– Claude Monet

Hope everyone has a great day!
