Day 29...

It's been 4 weeks post-storm and you can finally see our driveway. With all the busy-ness of end of the school year and being busy on the weekends for various things, I just haven't had time to finish the clean up. It's still not quite done, but it's closer. I need to empty out the garage to try to get all the cottonwood "snow" out.

Here are the remains of our fence, trampoline, and swing set, ready to go to recycling. It's been reduced to such pathetic little piles. That's chain link with ivy that has grown through it, not a pile of brush. All I need is a truck to haul it in (are you reading this, Alan?).

Here's our new fenceless (except for the rigged up section to keep Sadie in) driveway that we have't seen in a while. Hope the kids don't fall off the edge...

Here's what remains of our pecan tree

and our cottonwood tree

We have some nice logs hanging out on the street, waiting for the city crews (we hope)...

Some of it was just too big to get up the hill, so I shoved it down into the ravine, using some to fill in a low spot.

Others were too big to carry, but I thought they make nice stools or something someday, so I rolled those into a corner where we didn't have any grass anyway.

If you need a truck, come borrow mine, or even Cliff's, he won't mind, and if he did, what's he gonna do, he is out of the country.

Let me know if you get tired of waiting on the city, I mioght be able to get Stephen to come by with the trailer and haul some of that off for you. He might like to have the logs for firewood.
