Broken Item of the Week.

Yes, it has happened again.  We were supposed to get a big snowfall on Saturday but that never happened.  Instead we got a skiff of snow and a lot of wind.  The wind continued all day and night. When we got up Sunday morning we were greeted with this. Hence, my broken item of the week.


What's the big deal, you say.  Well, it's where the tree fell that's the problem.


It snapped right off there.


And fell across the top of our driveway.

Emma, my trusty assistant.

Even better, our chainsaw is also broken. Looks like we might be here for awhile.

OH NO!!! Looking on the bright side, at least you have still internet! LOL

And by have still internet I clearly meant at least you still have internet. Obviously I failed to do what I teach my students to do - edit, proofread, and revise. LOL

No worries ... sending a posse. We'll have you out of there in a week or so.

Put Sassy to work. One horsepower should do it.

You have snow on the ground! We still have none. We did get the wind all day yesterday but no casualties. Hope you have an ax or something.

I worry that your broken items are increasing in scale! Does this mean you hunker down till the spring thaw and make a lot of cushions? It's a bit Seven Brides for Seven Brothers!

yeah, it looks like it's time to break out the ole horsepower. you guys have all the luck. xo

Sarah said...

at least you can't Mr. LC for this one!

Hope you have lots of firewood and good food!

Makes for a cozy weekend though...

Uh, Oh. Why do trees always fall across the road? You'd think they'd be more considerate. I hope some night in shining armor with a chainsaw came and rescued you.

ok, LOVE whoever gave the Seven Brides for Seven Brothers shout out! Also, if Emma's your trusty assistant what do you call hubby?!

bobbi said...

you could call that sweet wood chopper from last post. I bet he has a working chainsaw!

Pamela said...

Stefan agrees with Urban Cottage, one horse power should do it! I think Sassy is too crazy though!! I think Emma would have more gumption then Sassy!

Isn't your little grandson kitted-out in lumberjack gear? I think only he has the stamina to get rid of that thing!
