So far, just some rain. The most is supposed to hit this afternoon. Not much wind. Mostly rain. Then we will probably get sporadic thunderstorms throughout the week.
The tree people came out and took a look. They said that dead tree is too far away from the house to cause much damage if it falls. They will be taking down 6 trees that are endangering the house. There are two more in the back that are shading out my garden area.
I wanted those two removed, too, but that will run the cost up from $3600 to $4800. So I'll just stick with the ones that are endangering the house.
They said everyine is scared. They are running 3 weeks behind at this point.
Peoole who do not live in the country have no idea how quickly the forest can overtake the land. Our yard is a fraction of the huge size it was when we moved here 22 years ago.
I've lost my sunset views, views of the hills out of our back yard, and enough sunny space for full sun gardens.
At least with more sun, I can plant more flowers in the front yard.

In California, we lost our view of the fireworks show from the local high school, when a neighbors tree grew tall enough to block the view. Here, we've lost the view of a neighbors' house, due to their trees, so big deal.
Over the years, we've taken down a few trees, due to their health. One I was very sorry to loose, another, not so much. That one was out front and only looked good for one month out of the year...from THE OTHER side of the street. LOL. So, I wasn't sorry to see it go.
Take care & here's hoping the crew gets to those trees soon!
