More Tree Trimming- May 2012

Six days after our "BIG WIND" on May 22nd, trimming work began on my neighbor to the west. There's was the tree from which a large branch knocked down a corner of my back fence as well as knocking off the top of their chimney! It has been an amazing experience for me to watch this particular tree service company out of Danbury, Iowa, make use of all their powerful equipment.  They are the same company that tackled the two huge trees in front of my brother's cottage on the east side of my home the very morning after the storm!  Really a great bunch of workers! Lansink Tree Service!

May 2012 Wind Damage

80 mph winds were recorded last night causing major tree damage and some structure damage to homes along Lakewood Drive where I live and other streets south of town.  Pictured above are actually two huge tress that were in front of my brother's next door cottage.  Believe it or not neither his house which you can't see on the left and the yellow cottage seen here received minimal damage - possibly due to the fact there was enough yard area between the two homes to allow for a place for the trees to land.  Also, an electrical cable that was around one of the trees is what kept it from crushing my brother's home. My back fence was the major damage I suffered at my home along with one broken window. The white object seen on the ground is part of my neighbor's chimney which the huge branch seen here knocked off and caused the damage to my fence.

Colorful Heart Puzzle

This colorful heart puzzle was started at the library by one of young patrons but was worked on by several different patrons of all ages until it was finally completed this week. It was one of those difficult puzzles as all the shapes were exactly the same shape and the multi-colors were overlapping on each piece.  What a beautiful puzzle it makes now that it is completed.  ENJOY!
