Trucks and Trees

Just don't mix.

The night after the moving truck came and got all of our belongings we had a storm.  The tree fought the storm and the storm won.  I am sad that the tree fell.  This is the tree where we raked up leaves every fall and the kids played in them.  The tree that kept the swing set shaded and the one that we sat under and watched the kids play.

I didn't realize just how big that tree was.  The top of the tree reached all the way over to the other side of our breezeway.

The men in our neighborhood were amazing.  There were about six guys with chainsaws helping to get it moved so we could get out of the garage so we could leave for our move.  It only took them about 45 minutes to get it all cleared away.  I think the neighbors that we had are going to be one of the things I will miss the most about Minnesota.

The truck is totaled and I am thankful that no one was hurt when it fell.
