Woke up this morning to the sound of a chainsaw. My neighbor apparently decided to remove a huge source of shade from their yard - why, when we face 80 degree temps in March, I'll never know. The tree was perfectly healthy. I can practically hear the plant-shrieks from here. I can bet you someone will be spending $5K to install a mini-split A/C unit sooner than later.
I do know that my sunsets will never be the same again. I'll have to walk quite a ways - or drive - to achieve the same effects.
Adieu, old friend.
