We were very blessed that none of the 30+ trees fell on our home or pool. Neighbors had their forty foot-high spruce tree rip put at the root and fall between their home and another, across their front yard and onto the driveway and partially in the road! This tree was planted in the late 1940's when those homes were built.. very large, very heavy and very dead now,,
We had some limbs fall behind the pool, on the pool cover and stabbed into the ground like big black swords!!!
We are now pumping the 10-15,000 gallons of water off the pool cover, then will tackle the many, many, many bushels of leaves and smaller branches to clear them off the cover to make way for snow and ice. It is an all-day job, but half the water is now pumped off,,
Never a dull moment here, but the excitement is never exactly glamorous...
