unexpected gardening interlude

Rainstorm last night, not unexpected for San Francisco in February; today my housemate looks out the back window and says "hey, there's a huge tree branch in our back yard." We go out there and discover that the eucalyptus tree in the corner of the neighboring back yard has lost a good ten feet of its top, trunk included, all come crashing down and fortunately didn't hit the vegetable garden.

So we chop it up into smaller bits with big saws, and throw it all over the fence into the neighbors' woodpile. (Hey, it's their tree. Besides, they have a woodpile and we don't.)

Makes a nice change from the endless rounds of compiler bugs.
