Scouts come to the rescue after recent storm

Heavy storms on March 2 caused a large pine tree to fall across the home-site driveway in front of the Miller building.  Luckily it fell so perfectly it did very little damage yet it would be a large cleanup job.

I was in charge of an Eagle Scout project workday with Boy Scout Troop 1882 on the Discovery Trail—mulching and installing new erosion control—that morning.  One of the leaders, Phil Webb volunteered to run home and get his work truck and equipment to saw up the tree.  Once the tree was cut part of the Troop helped load it to be hauled away. 

It is moments like these when the generosity of others is so appreciated.  Many thanks to Troop 1882 for all the help.
