I was all ready to paint the shutters Saturday morning.
Just as I laid them out and was going to get the compressor I heard a loud crash.
I huge branch fell out of a tree just up the road from the house. I called the electric company immediately and said the magic word “sparking”.
In the mean time another neighbor called 911 and the fire department showed up in short order and waited until the power was turned off to the downed lines.
Foliage and limbs blocked passage in and out of the dead end road on which we live.
More importantly the limb, maybe it was 2 limbs, pulled down power lines and created some sparking and fire. The electric company came in 2 shifts: first to clear the debris and second to repair the lines.
We were without power until late afternoon so I did some planting instead of painting.
Another weekend’s plans foiled.
Are you getting things accomplished?
