This tree was probably thirty years old. So sad!
Thanks for coming over Dad!
Last month a bad monsoon hit Phoenix and pulled up some of the roots of the tree. A couple of days later, as we were getting flood irrigation and I was nursing baby to sleep, I heard a huge crash and looked out the window to see the tree laying on the side of our house. Husband was at work, so I called my parents to come over to help inspect the damage. I didn't know if it was going to crash through the patio onto the house or what. It was quite the adventure!
The only silver lining is that we may be able to finally build a laundry room. Yeah, you're correct. Our washer and dryer have been on the patio for two years. Two years. I really can't even remember what it's like having a laundry room.
