Yesterday through last night we got around an inch and a half of ice/sleet/wet snow. I woke up this morning to this .
That is not just a tree. It is a tree with some kind of mutant thorny vine completely intertwined throughout. It took an hour and a half to clear enough to get my truck out of the garage.
And, it is not even my tree. It is on my neighbors property-an empty house. The house has been standing empty since I moved in, 3+ years ago. Some guy and his wife come during the summer and mow, but they don’t do anything with the trees. They also don’t do anything about the sump pump discharge that floods my garage.
Now my pants are wet and I missed my appointment with the accountant. Fuck!
Re your appointment, your pickup truck / SUV couldn’t get around the far end of the tree? Might be an optical illusion but it looks like you should have easily been able to drive over or around the top section.
