Snowy sunrise


With our "art tree" in the middle.

We get a lot of questions about the tree (now dead) in our front yard. Decades ago Chuck Sr worried about the trunk splitting and part of the tree falling on the house. His solution? Wrap a braided steel cable around the tree. It worked and the tree never split and fell on the house but now we have a dead tree with a mystery length of cable embedded in the wood. Not something we want to find with the chainsaw. Someday we will get the whole tree cut down but for now we just refer to it as our modern art piece and how it reflects the control of man over nature or something like that...
