Saving the House

Saving the house from a tree

You never know what is going to happen in a day around here.  As you can see by the pictures, Syd even gets a little bit of lumber-jacking in sometimes.  A couple of weeks ago we realized that there was a large tree that was starting to fall towards the house–not a great situation.  So Syd got out there with his climbing harness, ropes, machete and axe in order to cut off portions of tree before cutting the actual trunk with a gratefully donated chain saw.  We used the car to give enough tension to make sure that the tree fell the right way.  When all was finished, we breathed a huge sigh of relief and thanked the Lord that the tree was down and all involved (including the house and car!) were safe and intact.
