Cleaning has Begun


The last few days have been hectic.  Jim used the bobcat to start clearing some of the debris from the yard directly behind the back door.  Here’s what it looked like when he started.

The weeds and piles of old branches outside the fence were a hazard.  In the past several years there have been auto accidents because people couldn’t see around the corner.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASo, we worked on clearing some of that up today.  I worked like a fiend gathering up all the piled dried branches and used the wood chipper inside the fence.  A small mountain of debris is now about one garbage bag of usable mulch.  Jim tackled the nightmare outside the fence.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

By the end of two days, here’s the results.  Obviously, there’s still more clearing to do, but at least now folks can use that intersection without fear of crashing and burning!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Tomorrow we hope to finish clearing out the debris and weeds around this section of the property.  For now, however, I’m taking a long, hot bath, heating up some soup for dinner, and then crawl into bed.
