Fallen tree in the road

Today Randy & I were considering going out to the movies - we wanted to do something that didn't involve any work whatsoever. We wanted a day off from work. Before we went out, Jack (the cat) begged for a walk in the woods. Jack so loves his walks. So Randy & Jack & I went out on a walk in the woods. Jack was sharpening his nails on a tree when we heard a loud crashing, ripping sound. Jack scampered up the tree & had to be retrieved & put back in the house. Randy & I went to investigate ~ an old pine tree fell across our dirt road.

Just the top of the tree was across the road.

It knocked other smaller trees out of it's way when it fell.

There is never a day without work on the farm. I gave Randy this chainsaw a few years ago for his birthday. People thought I was strange for giving him a chainsaw for his birthday, but I knew he'd appreciate it. He's used it alot since then.

Logs after the cleanup was complete. There is always logs to be split around here.

Road is now all clear.

Wow Lynn! Was that your road out? Never a dull moment, huh? -Check out my blog! I finally got the ad sense to work. The counter too! Talk to you later. -

It's so beautiful among the trees in your pictures. How funny that you were actually out when the tree fell so that you heard it. Sorry about your day off.

Barb ~ yes, that's our only way in/out. I'll go check out your blog right now!

Robin ~ I thought it was pretty neat that we heard the tree fall. I thought about the old question -something about if a tree makes noise when it falls in the woods... Yes, it makes alot of noise!
