Yesterday, as I came home, I saw that a tree had fallen across one of the paths in the forest:
Arse. Today was supposed to be hot and humid, and I didn't look forward to cutting out the tree, but since it wasn't fully on the ground, thus requiring a walker to climb over the felled tree, I needed to chop it out. However, the light was already failing, so it had to be postponed until today.
I went out in the late afternoon -- slept in -- and chopped it (and a few maple saplings) out.
