The came early again, but, suspecting that might happen, we were all here. They didn't need everything moved for this day, but they do for next Wednesday, so while waiting for them, the guys got the RR ties moved. Eventually, we'll want the ties up here, but moving them may take some planning.
The crew, new people from last time, and really good to work with, went across the creek down at the house, and cut down/bucked 2 trees which I didn't even know had come down.
That leaves one over there, plus one in the forest which was from a previous storm that they will also remove.
They got down a limb near the road which required a lot of work, and maybe one other tree or limb.
Then, they got the tree off of the lab, for which I was extremely grateful, and then walked in and cut down/bucked up the big tree that destroyed my old chicken coop and had it's top on the house.
Those last two took the bulk of the time that they were here. And, they were here for longer than anticipated by their company.
Now, we are just waiting for the all-day day next Wednesday. Instead of coming later in the afternoon, they will be here first thing in the morning, and it will take all day. They will need heavy equipment to lift the trees off of the house.
I don't mean to keep repeating myself on moving things, but Ds has very little time to come by here. He's already taken time on the days when they were here, and he had to take off 2 unexpected days for personal situations. Somehow, between now and Tuesday, he and Dh, regardless of Dh's back...unless it goes out to the point where he's bedridden, of course, need to move stacks of firewood, board wood, etc., or else they will not be able to get what equipment that they want in here, and Wednesday would be cancelled.
So, that's what has happened, and where we are at, at the moment.
I forgot to mention something that happened on day one.
When they were dropping one of the trees down in our driveway, Ds saw a long package on the ground. Such as would be delivered by UPS, or other carrier.
However, a heavy limb had fallen on it.
I didn't order anything long, but, there it was. So, when the limb was moved, we saw that the name on the package was that of the wife of a neighbor.
Ds spoke with them, and sure enough they had been expecting something. Unfortunately, not much could survive a limb in one piece...except what they had ordered, which was a mattress! :-)
