Cleaning Up After the Windstorm

Yesterday was a busy day at Lost Creek. I had a crew here to take down and clean up my radio tower that was lost during the windstorm of April 4. It was quite a job.
A cherry picker was required to get the tower and antennas out of the trees.
Careful and skillful climbing was a must.
A skillful ground crew cleared away the mess.
The damage was extensive and expensive.
Penny, the beagle, was supervising.
The magnificent 110 foot structure survived for nearly 14 years through a variety of storms, but the storm of April 4 was more than it could handle. I'll have to say that I don't remember another one of such violence during the time we have lived here. Now comes the task of settling with the insurance company.

  1. Penny did a fine job supervising. They could not have done it without her. You will receive her bill for services rendered, one Yam Good Treat will pay the bill.
