First: a before image... that thing that looks like a tree? On the right?
Actually ivy, grown around a 6 x 6' post. Birds & bees were wild about it, as it was frequently covered with blossoms & berries. The post was once one end of a clothesline.
It all snapped, in the near hurricane force winds of the storm last night. (See the post in 2nd pic?)
More of this ivy came down in the street in front of our neighbor's house, bringing out crews with chainsaws in the night to cut the 8" thick trunks.
So... I guess we'll be getting a chance to re-think this whole area, where we could definitely use something to block our view of that blue tarp on the neighbor's trailer...
