You know that big storm that came through St. Louis the other day? My neighbors tree got struck by lightning. Big ol' thing came crashing down into the street. I had a couple of branches down in my yard from my own trees. Big deal. But, there was more. A lot more.
The branches were much bigger than I thought. MUCH. I filled 6 yard waste bags and made a pile of small logs from those branches. I got worked over!
