But guess what's happening on the empty 5 acres behind us? It's being turned into some sort of retention pond. To achieve this, the state has been busy clearing it out. Unfortunately, the dead trees will not be cleared out but the whole wooded area on the other side of our neighbor's house has been.
Our neighbor is pretty pissed off that "her" trees have been removed. I sat in the backyard and listened to the bulldozers work while I laughed my ass off today. I find it ironic that a year ago she put up a stink about taking down dead trees and now the whole treeline separating her house from her neighbor's is gone.
Ha-fucking-ha, I hope you enjoy your new view.
