It’s Thanksgiving week so things are a little mixed up. We have family coming to visit but they won’t arrive until Friday so we’re switching the feast to Friday. They have a toddler and a dog coming too so I’ll probably be flexible with meals while they’re here.

Yesterday (Saturday) we had a HUGE wind storm come over us. I was on the phone with a friend when I started seeing the trees sway back and forth. I no sooner hung up when one tree snapped in half on the other side of the house.

Iko alerted us that something was wrong but at first we didn’t know what it was. The thud of landing was muffled by other trees that broke its fall so we never heard the crash–except for Iko. That dog can hear trouble in the next county.

At least it didn’t land on the house. Greg went out to survey our pens and roof to make sure nothing else had come down, but it looks like this was the only casualty. It’s a shame. It was a nice oak. We’ll have our work cut out for us hauling and cutting up that tree.

    Iko has good “radar for trouble” Maria. Good boy!

    “At least it didn’t land on the house.”

    Double edged sword with a happy outcome that it was only the tree damaged Maria.

    “It was a nice oak. We’ll have our work cut out for us hauling and cutting up that tree.”

    May be a lot of work but if you have a fireplace or fire pit think of all the nice wood to burn in one or the other. Also Oak work wonderfully for smoking and BBQ’ing too. That is all they use here whereas in South Texas we all used and loved Mesquite wood for cooking.

  2. Jackie: The first thing Greg said was what good firewood it will be. At least it’s not a total loss.

    Iko is a shadow kind of dog. He stays in the background, but he’s always watching and listening–especially when I unwrap a package of cookies. LOL!

Say a few words for our audience.
