Surprisingly, the rain stopped just before the tree guy arrived, and the sun even came out. It was just a man and his son, and it took them nearly 7 hours to get 5 branches cut out of the tree, cut up, and hauled away. All that time for $150.00. But he didn't have the equipment the big companies use but did get the job done.
So that was the last of the ice storm damage, as long as I don't look 'up' at the Chinese Elm in the back yard. That's the big trunk you see in the first pic. It will be interesting to see how much re-branching it does, if any. I'll take a pic once it leafs out with what few branches it has.
In other news.....
Craig called and got the insurance put back on the mo-ho, and I finished restocking it. I'll un-winterize the water system next weekend and we should be ready for our first trip.
We've also been looking at Las Vegas area furniture companies. Craig is now thinking he wants the house furnished (if and when we get it) so when we go out on vacation, it'll be all nice and new. Then when we retire, we'll sell our stuff here and just take our really special things with us. Anyway, that's the plan as of today. We haven't heard anything as of yet, but it's only been just over 2 weeks since the offer went to the bank, and our Realtor said it could take 46 - 60 days.
So that's it for now. Back to work for what looks to be a busy week.
