Before that cat showed up this is what the back yard looked like
It ran back and forth through the back yard carrying big drain pipe and leaving lots of muddy tracks
Right in the middle of their path through the yard was a tree. Notice I said was.
If you look at the first picture, the only tree now standing in the back yard is the big one in the middle. The pear tree on the right (you may remember me complaining about it) is no more. Funny story with this. They knocked on the door Monday and talked to Wade. He said they asked about taking out the trees and he told them go ahead. Tuesday evening I was looking out the back door and I said to Wade that it didn't make sense that they had to take out the pear tree but not a tree in my neighbors yard that is even closer to where they are working. Wade gets a big grin and he says well they didn't have to take the pear tree out. They asked about the other one and I said sure but too bad you don't have to take the pear tree. The guy offered to pull that one out too and Wade took him up on it.
So you are probably wondering what all this is about. I've shown you the flooding we get in our back yard when it rains. The borough is finally taking care of it. Hopefully when this project is all done I will never have to go on flood watch again
