    That is one big pile of wood!  Hope you aren't suffering any ill-effects from all the work.  

    The river is down a little, below 20ft.  Everywhere upstream is also falling, so we may be okay in a few days.  Clean-ups is always a pain, but it could have been much worse.  They'll take fire hoses to the streets and benches in the park.  Sand bags will be hauled away and we'll just pray that there are no more torrential rains....

      I hope for rain, though not in your area.  We need lots more moisture here.

      My pile is nothing compared to some. And being of hardy stock, hauling the wood around to the front was easy enough with a flatbed dolly and a wheelbarrow. The hard part was fitting the dangling branch ends through the narrow space between the houses.

        I could do that work, but it would take me days, with lots of rest between trips.  :-)

        If we could send you some of our water, we surely would.  I hope you get some nice, gentle rains that soak in deep.
