No sooner was breakfast over, than I began to hear ominous talk of Nate and Jason taking down . . .
Not only is it tall, the wind was also particularly gusty that day, and the tower was visibly moving. Once again, my prayer life got a boost. I bet the guy's did too!
Sorry Nate, I didn't get any pictures of you up there. Some how the sight of you waving in the wind with a sawsall dangling from your belt on a rope was too scary for the camera!
I'm not quite sure how they did it (the details were too scary to be inquired into) but somehow they got it down without killing themselves. I did hear that at one point, it was so nerve racking that Nate started telling himself out loud as he was climbing all of the good points about the situations (Triangles are one of the most secure structures . . . let's see, what else?).
What a team!
It took them about all morning to get it down. That's okay, I was more than glad to have them take their time! This is what I saw out my kitchen window as I was fixing lunch.
Later, they worked on detaching it from the house and pulling out from the ground. You'll have to ask one of them how much concrete this thing turned out to be anchored in!
Ah, the joys of being back on solid ground!
Thanks guys for getting all that down. It's funny, but the sky looks so much bigger now!
