We had severe weather warnings for Tuesday evening. There were tornado warnings north of us. It was one of those rare times where the meteorologist got it right.
I asked a neighbour if I could borrow a power saw and then I spent seven hours yesterday cutting up the tree. I borrowed a reciprocating saw, which has a blade that moves backwards and forwards. If I didn’t have the saw tight against the branch or the branch started moving, then the blade stopped moving and the saw moved backwards and forwards! My arm was flailing around and my brain felt like it was inside a cocktail shaker. Needless to say, I ended up with a sore shoulder and a headache.
Anyway, we are okay, there was no damage to the house and the mess is cleaned up. The tree that was buried actually bounced back up once the weight was taken off it. There was no damage to it. Nature is amazing, in so many ways.
