Tree

Some guys showed up on the street this afternoon and began chopping branches from one of the ponderosas. They removed all but those on the top ten or twelve feet of the tree which is about seventy feet tall. It looks very odd with all its lower branches gone. The chipper into which they tossed the branches made an incredible racket. They stopped working at four o'clock. I suspect that they'll come back early tomorrow to finish destroying the tree, unless there is rain, which there might be.

The sky is full of cumulus clouds, and all the afternoon has been a play of light and shade, and cool, gusty breezes. The weather is perfect for spring. It makes me sad.
