The tree comes down

There was a tree inconveniently located where we want to put the new driveway, so yesterday some nice people came with their big trucks and their chainsaws and cut it down.

 

I have to tell you this has not been good for my health and well-being.  My allergies have launched a full-scale, full-on attack and I spent most of today feeling like garbage.  Of course it probably doesn’t help that they are also resufacing the street one house over from ours, so there is lots of good dust and whatnot in the air too.  Yummy.

 

So here are some photos:

 Ever since the movie Fargo, I have never been able to look at a wood chipper without thinking of this:

“I guess that’s your partner there in the chipper.”

Later some guys came and ground the stump out too, but I didn’t take any pictures of that.
