Timber!

I looked out my kitchen window after dinner tonight and discovered that a 15-20 section of tree trunk had snapped off one of the trees in our backyard and crashed through the back fence for no apparent reason. My thoughts on this are:
  • We're renters. We don't have to pay for this. Yay!
  • I realize that trees cut down cooling costs, but at times like this, trees seem overrated.
  • If we buy in a neighborhood with mature trees, we will need an arborist on speed dial.
  • If we buy in a neighborhood with mature trees, we're going to need at least a modest chain saw.
