Just moments ago we had a big wind come up and knock a huge branch (about a 35 footer) off of an old alder in our back yard. It totaled the bird bath and a couple of feeders but missed my ECB by mere inches! Here are some pix. Looks like I will be cutting up some alder for the wood pile. I hear its good for smoking, so its not all bad news! that's my el-cheapo honkey charcoal grill in the foreground (ECHCG), a nice compliment to my ECB.
