A couple days ago I decided that it was time to take down the 'ole Christmas tree. Gettin' towards February. The ornaments were getting dusty.
The tree was so completely dead! Barely touching the tree caused a shower of needles. I think that by the time I got the tree out to the curb there were more needles on the floor than on the branches!
Just look at that mess. It took four dustpan loads to get them into the garbage. Maybe I could have taken care of this earlier.
I unplugged the lights outside, but I'm not going to be taking them down in -10 degree weather
