    No power = no water no furnace ~ well the top 15-20 feet of a standing dead gets blown off by a gust of wind and pooooffft ```
    This morning about 6:30 the power company come with heavy equipment and got the power on in no time ```
    I had planned to cut down some standing dead this morning ```

    I'll show the top that broke off and took out the power line in later photos ```

    What kind of trees are those, Richard? They look kinda like pines, but not totally.
    At least when ours fell, it wasn't near any power lines.

    Here's the top of a tree that took out the power line ``` IMG_1015.JPG
    here is the tree it came off of ~ the pump house is in the picture ~ you should be able to see the tree it came from ```

    there are the power lines.

    The power company may/should send out Arbor fellows to bring that scag down ~ I called them last year ~ told the girl of the standing dead ~ but I could tell she wasn't interested ```
