As a result, I got right on it and had three very large trees that were on the other side of our backyard dropped before the major windstorm of the decade hit (the workers were working their chainsaw magic right until the storm would not let them work any longer.)

Of the three that were removed, the 100' Cedar (pictured below) was actually rotten and would have most likely deposited itself on our house had is not been removed. That's our fence on the left of the felled trees.
So dear knitter, we were without power for 4 days. When the roads were finally clear, and I could get out, the FIRST place I went to was....my local YARN SHOP, of course.
I'll be sharing what comes from that soon.
