Well, we needed something to do this weekend anyway.

Check out what we found out in the backyard yesterday afternoon following the morning's wind storm. What used to be a 45 foot tall Norway Maple tree is now laying on the ground!  Luckily, it didn't fall on anything important, like our stack of great classic rock records!

We also lost the top off another tree when it split in two.  Each side of the newly split crown landed on each side of the backyard shed, so, I guess we were pretty lucky.  Maybe it's a good day to buy a lottery ticket.

When Saturday rolls around we'll break out the chainsaw and cut 'er up, and then load 'er up into the truck and transport it all over to a friend of ours who has a wood stove.

A big thank you to Mother Nature for providing this weekend's workout!
