Breaking Our Heart(wood)

Thursday night was a gusty one. We were told to expect up to 40 mph winds to push ahead a cold front. As we were going to bed, we heard a large limb hit the ground in the backyard. B went out with a flashlight and confirmed that it was part of the pine. Last spring sometime, a big limb had broken near the top.  It is hung up,  but not without killing a couple of other branches that are also still attached. So our hope was that it was some of that dead stuff finally dropping.  No. This was a live one of decent girth and a length of about 18 feet.

The good news was that:
a) it did not land on the screen porch or the shed
b) it has fat lighter in it

We will not let that go to waste.
