Then just after 3 o'clock this morning I heard that ominous "fooommp" from somewhere outside. Almost instantaneously the power went out. I grabbed a flashlight and walked the yard. A large Georgia Pine had fallen across the street, knocking out the power to the entire neighborhood. The power company was there within the hour, and nearly six hours later they'd restored the power. And now I have at least another weekend's worth of work waiting for me in the front yard.
