We have some very large tree limbs down in our back yard, and our power was out all day. I know this is nothing compared to what many families are dealing with, but that was quite a wind this morning. We stayed home from church because it didn’t seem wise to leave home with the wind still roaring like that. I can’t even imagine doubling the wind speed–that’s what they had down in Texas I guess. Yikes.
The tree that had two of its three main limbs sheared off will probably just need to be removed altogether. That’ll be ok, it was a nuisance of a tree with lots of above-ground roots making it hard to mow. Once removed there’ll be another good swathe of full sun, and after those roots decay, I will have room for some more interesting plants and a vegetable plot.
