    Trees all fall down

    We received just 10 inches of wet snow. Broke all our trees falling most of them. Haven't experienced a snow like this since 1968. Took us two days to clear our drive way. I guesstimate months of labor clearing the damage on just our three acres. On the bright side we've got years of firewood. These oak trees start their lives as single trunk trees. When they burn up, a natural environmental occurrence, they grow back as multi trunk trees. If they fail to burn up a second time then they grow so large they will split at their base and fall down. These oaks are eveorgreens and are not snow friendly. No TW's were injured during this tragic occurrence. In fact, the trees missed our house, the boat house, the truck camper and both automobiles and both donkeys. We did experience a lot of wire fence damage which I will consider insignificant all things considered. Northern California has not been a safe place to live in the past few months. Our power had been off for a week because of down trees breaking power lines. Still some neighbors without power and water.

    Glad you're safe. What a mess. Put up signs for free firewood and let others clean it up for you.

    Should I come visit with a chipper and chain saw? Dealing with the brushy stuff can be a big time consumer.

    I'm also handy with a chain saw if you want to have work party.

    Should clean up some of that brush before the whole place burns down.
