Am dealing with the aftermath of a windstorm we had here. 120+MPH winds. Lots of storm damage.
Cleanup of broken/uprooted trees will likely take weeks. Took a half day off work and cleaned trees away from houses for 6 hours so that the power company folks can work their magic to return the flow of electrons to the homes for fridges and freezers and AC devices…and lights and phone chargers and well pumps and entertainment boxes and such. But mostly AC. Chainsaws and a tractor to haul broken trees. I’d rather be running the tractor, but Midwest Chick drove and I handled the chains and saws and tree tongs.
And it had to be the hottest day of the year (so far). I drank a little over 1.5 gallons of assorted fluids in 6 hours and moved about 5 tons of wood. Literally. Gatorade is your friend in this heat and humidity, friends.
Dinner, bed and more tomorrow. If I can get out of bed.
