The Clean Up


Hello everyone --

Here are some pictures from the storm clean up from the downed tree in our yard. It is pretty impressive.

FYI, Oak Lawn will not do anything about a downed tree in your BACKyard. A backyard is considered private property, and therefore, homeowner's responsibility. If this tree was in our front yard, it would have been a different story (I'm told).

However, if you move the tree/limbs out front, they'll pick it up. Boy, do they have their work cut out for them.

A BIG thanks to my personal superman, Adam, his dad Joe, and our neighbor Jim.


This is my favorite picture from today (click on these to see them bigger):


And, a BEFORE:


And, AFTER:





Here are the rest of the clean up pics:





















More soon :)

I have never seen such a neatly organized pile of limbs in my life...too bad you don't have a fireplace. If we lived closer Mark would have been there to help and haul off those leafless logs! He's like a squirrel collecting nuts for the winter when it comes to firewood!

Just glad the mass of limbs didn't crash down on your house!
