We met with the builder today, to make sure that the driveway was a nice curving one, rather than the straight line the bulldozer had roughed in. Excavation-Man was splendid to save 2 extra trees at the start of the driveway, which gave us a nice start to the s-curve we had anticipated for the drive. Thereafter, however, he took an as-the-crow-flies approach: straight as an arrow.
A lot more trees came down yesterday, and I actually saw two come down. . . . scarey stuff.
Here's the pile that still remained. Much of it will stay, and be cut up for firewood. It hurts. But the clearing is beautiful - especially in the morning sun.
