A Windy Day

Let me start by saying we are thankful for the mild Winter we have had this year! I know our little situation is NOTHING compared to what some are dealing with now but I since this is our blog and I create a book about us I wanted to have this event documented. 

Mark went to let the dogs in Friday evening and saw this! A huge tree in our backyard was literally in the process of being blown over. We have a corner lot so our back yard touches 4 neighbors yards. This year was about to fall on all their power for our neighborhood, take one house, fall on our fence...etc. 

 Look at the roots...the tree wasn't/isn't dead...that's how strong the winds were. We called the electric company and the lady actually laughed at Mark because she said they "aren't a tree trimming company" and that they"won't touch it until it falls or gets into the power lines." Seriously?!!? After much convincing she told Mark they would send someone out to take a look. Ha! It wasn't until the next morning a man knocked on the door asking about the tree. He looked for about 5 seconds and said they would have a crew ASAP to take care of it! 
Because it was leaning so much this is how they cut it. One man in the tree and 4 on the ground holding the rope. Talk about trust...Wyatt and I watched from the upstairs window. He loved it SO much! 
 We took a break from watching. I saw a few making their way to their trucks so I went around the back to see the finished product. Ya, that's it! They left it just like that...branches, sticks, and the truck ALL OVER our backyard! Fun huh?!!?!? This 37 week pregnant lady handled it really well. (AKA My dad to the rescue and said he would take care of it for us, what would I ever do without him!!?!?)
