As if I don’t already have enough on my plate yesterday a large branch fell from a neighbor’s tree across our alley. There doesn’t seem to be any damage to our roof or the old or new parts of our house but the branch is brushing our house and, importantly, our electrical service. Fortunately, the branch is supported by another branch on the tree from which it fell and the neighbor’s rickety wooden fence but I don’t know how long that will last.
Right now we’re concerned that a) the tree will interfere with progress on our home addition and b) the tree can’t be cleared until the electrical service is removed. Being trapped in a hot electricity-less house, unable to work, with three panting, frustrated dogs doesn’t appeal to me a great deal.
Ah, well. It certainly could have been worse. Much, much worse.
