Thanks to many for help with tree downed in storm

During the recent big wind storm, a very large hemlock fell from our land, blocking the country road for hours. Neighbors and other passing motorists stopped to help clear the roadway. The shoulders of the road were piled high with branches, and it would have been very labor intensive if I had been left to clear everything by myself.

Thankfully, in a few days, here came the Snohomish County road crew from Arlington. They made quick work of disposing of all those branches. It was a tremendous help and was so appreciated. Thank you very much for a good job.
