Changing Landscape

The snapshot downloaded from GoogleEarth shows our property in the red outline. It is the full length of the unpaved street and covers 2/3 of the depth of the block. The north edge is on the I20 service road. The deed actually says that some of the property was sold to the state when Hwy 80 became I20 and added service roads. A lot of brush clearing has gone on since I last posted. The majority of the property received some attention from the shredding machine over two days.

Some work was started on the 3rd day when the machine broke down but not before a neighbor's corner fence post got knocked down. He traded off some of the work time for us doing the repairs on the fence. We'll call him to come back to finish later.

The post has been replaced and most of the chain link fencing reattached. Two of the brackets were bent too much so they will need to be replaced. Temperatures in the high 90's keep us from working steadily.

You can see photos of the shredder, the start of the work and the results:
