I've changed my mind.

Yeah, I'm just puttering around. Doing laundry.
Making videos of the dog and
BOOM!
The dogs started barking and at first I thought someone had hit the big electric box across the street but no, I still had power.
I walked around the house in a daze when all of a sudden a thought hit me.
I ran to the back door.
I just noticed last week that my Weeping Willow was partially dead.
I had decided that the job would be too big for me to do myself.
I would have to hire someone and that would take some dollars.
It towers over 2 stories.
I figured I better start saving now before winter came and the snow brought it down.
Yeah, that's the limb to the right of the photo.
(and yes, that is a hot tub on my neighbors driveway...
I'm biting my tongue here.)
and this is the BOOM.
The tree limb came down in the rain and the corner of my roof is holding it up.
Suddenly this day sucks.

I do hope it didn't do any damage on Your house! Just make sure that who ever takes it down has an insurance! Since times are bad I think You might get that job done rather cheap.

I'm glad You decided this was a too big job for yourself, God knows what could have happened if You had started cutting it!

Take care my friend!
