We had to keep going inside the house to relax with the air conditioning.
When my wife and I bought a new home, we were in love with the property but we were concerned about the large tree in the front. We thought that if there was a terrible storm and that tree fell over, it would surely smash into the house and destroy it. Also, what if our children were in the house and the tree fell onto it? Somebody could easily die in a situation like that and I would never be able to forgive myself if I could have done something to prevent a tragedy like that. We called around and learned that it’s expensive to take a tree down like that. So I decided to try my own thing. I ended up ordering this thing called a rope chain saw. It basically is a chainsaw blade that is attached to two ropes. You toss the one side of rope over the tree branches and you pull back and forth while letting the saw work through the branches. It’s actually a very effective tool in taking down trees, but it’s a lot of work. My wife and I were out there and we were sweating profusely while taking down different branches. We had to keep going inside the house to relax with the air conditioning. I swear if the air conditioning wasn’t working for whatever reason, I wouldn’t be able to do work like that. I was so sore after cutting down branches that I decided to take a break from working on the tree. I know we have to get back out there to tackle the rest of that tree, but I don’t look forward to sweating so much and being so sore. I wish I had a portable A/C unit that we could use while working outdoors.
