George’s Demise

It happened this afternoon. Our neighbor called KC at work and she called me. George is down and out.

George is gone   The end of an era

Now for the hardest part: the cleanup. Do I hear the call of any volunteers? :)

End of the Storm

We had tornado warnings today. They were issued while I was at work and we all had to file into our “bunker” during the warnings. And I guess a tornado was sighted here in town. But that’s not my big news. My big news is that George fell down; well at least part did. George is the name my daughter gave the pretty much dead willow tree at the bottom of the hill in our back yard. And George is down. We’ve been waiting for this to happen since the other tree simply snapped and fell in the wee hours of the morning. Of course, that was just under four years ago! Here’s the damage:

Poor dead George   What a mess!   More of a creek than a swamp

So now it’s time to clean up. Do I have any volunteers? :)

Swamp Again

After getting the swamp mowed on Sunday, we’re back to worse than before. Here’s the latest pics:
