I suppose I should start by saying that last week a neighbor told me that a rather large tree at our backdoor neighbor's house was going to be cut down. I should also apologize for the poor photo quality...shooting into the sun...no choice.
Great, I thought. Something going on to watch. A 40 to 50 foot spruce tree being cut down. And it is sandwiched between another tree to the back, power lines to the front, and a house to either side. This should be cool!
This morning they arrived at 8:30 and got all their equipment ready for the job. A 'cherry picker', multiple chain saws, a shredded/chipper, and two large trucks. I was hoping that they would get working quickly as I had to go volunteer at the historical society, but I also wanted to see at least some of the sawing action.
Wow, they did work quickly! By the time I left at 9:25, you can see that they just had to whack off the trunk. (which they did in sections)
Anyway, while I was out watching, the property owner came home. She parked her car down the street, out of the way, and walked on by me. As she did I said, "Hi, T___, thanks for providing some entertainment this morning!"
She responded, "If you think that this is entertaining, you have a sad life."
And walked on.
Huh. That was kinda mean.
