Very very lucky. This giant cottonwood came down last Thursday and it did zero yes you heard me zero damage to the house or the neighbors houses. It did mess up the back fence and crush half of the chicken pen. Don't worry, the chickens are all safe and sound. It also didn't pull any powerlines down. Just telephone and cable which were not connected anyway. So now we set to the enormous task of cutting it up. I am ever so grateful to Robb who came this afternoon to remove some of the huge branches from the neighbors yard.
