In my last post, I told about the week of storms we had February 17 – 23. If you missed that post, you can see it HERE.
Once we got our electricity back on, our biggest concern was the broken tree tops dangling from the trees around our house. Fortunately we were able to get a crew to do the work very efficiently.
One of the men was apparently unafraid of heights (as you can see from the photo above), and scampered up to the breaks and began to cut them free so they could be lowered to the ground. While he was up there he even admired the view he had of the mountains in the distance. I was happy he was up the tree, and not me.

He had to climb three trees to clean up all the breaks. In each case the branches were lowered to the ground where they were cut into smaller pieces so they could be moved more easily.
The truck loaded with cut-up tree tops ready to be hauled away. Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. March 2, 2015.
Finally the smaller pieces were loaded onto their truck and hauled away. As you can see, they had quite a load when they were finished. Now it’s up to Betsy and me to get all the remaining small branches and twigs cleaned up. I don’t think we’ll be bored.
