another tree goes…

The other night @ 10 pm we all hear this huge crack and boom. It was too dark to see anything but we sorta figured it was one of our bark beetle trees that’s dead. Big surprise, we see in the morning that it’s a huge oak that has cracked apart and barely misses out neighbors house. This was a huge branch from a huge oak.  That evening @ 7 my husband hears this crack and pop. Sure enough another branch off this huge oak lands on our side of the fence. it must be the drought that has caused these trees to just give up. Even though we had a good winter with rain it wasn’t enough after 5 years of drought. So that leaves one huge branch left on this tree.

We also have a very large oak near our house. It wouldn’t hit the house if it fell but it would squish cars!! So we called a guy we had gotten a number of that cuts trees very reasonably. Remember the one guy said he’d have to bring the crane and then were looking at another $1800 minimum. so this guy will rope the branches down and will do it for $5oo. what a deal. I can’t wait. Of course, I will leave as I’m too nervous to watch these things. I just have a feeling that our oak is going to crack and go. We know it has had ants in it and water damage in some holes. So it’s only a matter of time.  So, were gone 2 weeks off an on so, it’ll have to be after that. the good part will be oak fire wood.

 

It’s another hot day of 102 ,ugh…I hate the heat.

Dinner : Taco Tuesday. I’m buying to hot to cook.
