April 30th, Mother Natures Temper Tantrum
April 29th was just the beginning, the 30th she dropped 12 inches of snow. This morning I saw the damage that she caused.
Tree in front yard split in half.
Elm tree destroyed
Cherry tree half there
All that's left of the Peach tree
Apricot tree, some branches broke
Shade tree branches down
Large limb down
And the Iris can with stand anything.
We spent most of today cleaning up the yard, cutting down what's left of the fruit trees and shedding a few tears in the process. The fruit trees were planted in the early 80s by my dad and mom. I saved a bunch of the limbs and quite a few pieces of the trunks, will make them into crafts and some woodburning designs. I just don't have the heart to throw them in the dumpster.
Mother nature proved she still has the upper hand.
