Well, the ice took care of the Siberian Elms
Fifty years ago, some one planted two tiny Siberian Elm trees twenty feet from my house. They have grown to a good size, but limbs are always breaking off, leaving stumps sticking out. They are messy, but my wife won't let me cut them down and plant some better trees there.
Today's ice storm here in central Ohio has taken care of them pretty well, and I now know just what caused those crashes up on the roof in the small hours of the night.
They look like the tree topper guy was turned loose on them with his chainsaw for reduction to half their orignal height.
