We got a postcard in the mail telling us the electric company would be coming through and trimming trees sometime in the month of March. Even though I was warned, I was quite surprised to come home and find this in our front yard!
Our electric lines are in the back of our house and are close to a wooded area. They had to drag all this stuff up to the road. Thankfully they picked it all up the next day.
They did leave some messes in the back though. There are trees that have been "trimmed" of all there branches with only one small branch left at the top. Bob has already lined up his brother to come and help cut them down. It looks kind of ridiculous!
I was very glad the electric company got those branches when they did because the next day was extremely windy! I know from FB that some of you were dealing with the same type of wind. We were having wind gusts of up to 80mph. These windy days always seem to fall on the same day as trash pick up. When I came home from work I saw trash bins all over. There wasn't one that was still standing upright or at the end of a driveway.
I didn't take these next pictures. They were on FB, but they show what it was looking like around here.
Can you even imagine? Some people were without power from Wednesday until Saturday.
We didn't have much happen to us. A few small branches came down and we lost some shingles.
Hope any of you who were in the wind also stayed safe!
