|This is my Dad. He's a really, REALLY good sport!|
|That's my Dad again. He made all those hats for everyone for Christmas! Isn't he amazing?|
Lisa is also the best for loaning us her amazing Swedish gas-powered chainsaw. Without her and my dad we would not have accomplished this. It only took one full Saturday of exhausting hard work (but it is fun to chop things!), two huge loads to the dump (and $80 in dump fees), two chainsaws, 3 people, 3 Quizno's sandwiches, 2 massive bruises on my shins, and many aching muscles, to remove all of this:

So the obligatory winter storm is over. We had fun, we suffered, and it appears we've recovered. We still haven't learned any lessons about preparing for power outages. We're idiots. Commence summer, stat.
THANKS FOR BEING THE BEST DAD,
AND FOR BEING THE BEST, DAD!
