Here's one of the reason's we're just a little bit behind
Yep, down they came. Many branches in the neighboring yards were cracking and falling. Luckily only one tree came down to do us damage.
Here you can see it acorss of storage shed - however, the worse news is that it took down all the utility wires/cables to the house.
The neighborhood had been without power since about five a.m. Sunday and the tree came crashing down about ten o'clock or so.
We were lucky to get a motel room Sunday afternoon - hotels were filling up with not only people from Jeff City but with utility workers from afar who would be working here to re-store power.
Ron was able to co-ordinate the electrician [to re-install a pipe on the house to receive power from the utility pole] and the tree trimmers to remove the tree from the storage shed/driveway and downed power lines and ensuring us a place to sleep until power was restored to the neighborhood.
What a time it was!
So, here it is Christmas Eve. Time for Family.
