Just another Minnesota Mom blog.

And then they dropped all the branches on my garden.

So, remember that post from yesterday where I talked about all the work we did in the yard despite the tree coming down on Friday?

Well, the power company came out today to remove branches from around the power lines and although it was really fun to watch them up in the cherry picker, they apparently don’t work as cleanly as the city does.

Last summer we watched as the city came and took down an Elm tree across the street from us.  You could barely tell they were there after they were done.  I assumed this is how it would go today.

Not so much.

The roof of the garage is littered with branches.  Our yard and driveway are covered.  I can’t really see my straw bales but I am hoping they are still standing!

It sounds like the tree service will be tasked with taking care of the debris, which is fine.  I totally understand that the electric company isn’t in the business of disposing of trees as much as it’s in the business of making sure their wires are in tip-top shape.

On the other hand, if you have pets in your home, then you should design your backyard or garden with them in mind. A space which is friendly for your dog will keep it happy, healthy, and safe. Well, I got a guide for designing a friendly backyard for your dog.

I just really hope once this is all over it looks like no one has been here!

    Ick that sucks. I have trees I need to remove but its so expensive I'm sort of wishing natural disaster or some sort of electric interference will make someone take it down for free!
