    Man, that was some storm last night. Here's a victim, right on the corner of my lot next to my kids rooms !! :mad: For reference, this tree I'm going to guess is about 100" around (I can't 'hug' half of it, let's put it that way)

    You hug those trees & be proud of it ! We all need to love Mother Nature.
     
  7. I was hoping you would wait to post the pictures so I could guess who won. I would have guessed wrong though. :( Sucks to lose something like that. I hope it didn't to any damage. Happy chopping.

    Roger, is the tree leaning away from the house? It looks like it.

    " OGF ResidentTree hugger" :eek: Cripes!!

    If we could but pull back into our mouth some of the things we say!! :D

    Your only choice now is to beg for mercy, Roger. Like when Corey, and Wormie, etc. see this.

    Kidding aside, I am REALLY glad you and your family are O.K.
