Such is the sight I was greeted with this morning when I was rudely awoken from the pounding of a jackhammer:
Came home last night to find two guys digging a hole on our lawn; it turns out that some pipes have bursted or something (thank goodness it wasn’t ours, but the city’s). They came back this morning with a huge jackhammer/shoveler-truck to finish the job.
*sigh* Our poor tree!! So many of its roots were damaged in the process… it’s not like it can heal itself now either since it doesn’t have leaves for photosynthesis… Just hope it’s not hurt too badly… I really like this tree; it’s so big and leafy, and reaches out halfway into the street in the summer… Poor tree… It breaks my heart =(
