With the help of a couple of friends, a couple of neighbors and a lot of hard, sweaty work, it's all cleaned up! I do still have some broken limbs hanging down onto my roof in the back, but the yards are all cleaned up! I appreciated everyone so much. Casey and Charlie especially appreciated the chainsaws a friend brought with him, they'd been doing it with a small hand saw for a few hours. We're all sore today, but what a difference a day, friends and a lot of hard work makes!
The back yard is all cleaned up, too. Now it's up to the city to pick up what my friend couldn't fit into his truck. The city has it's hands full with debris, but we're a town blessed without anyone physically harmed. Many trees were pulled up by their roots, many houses lost their roofs and their fences, lots of cars damaged...but no people were physically hurt.
So, with some sore muscles, a couple of Aleve and a cup of coffee to go, I'm off to work. Enjoy your day.
