So, we were at our friends, Jena & Pend’s wedding in Montana, when we started getting texts from friends and family back home that there had been a storm “microburst” near our house. I figured that there might be some limbs down, but when we got home, we saw the immense amount of damage that impacted the fabulous (and newly pruned) maple tree. I can’t even begin to express what a bummer this was.
This is the kind of plot line you’d expect on a Reality TV show. Sadly, this was our reality. However, to make lemonade out of these lemons, we kept the trunk of the tree, and are hoping to make a dining room table out of it … lemonade.
