Photo hunt Aftermath:"There tearing down trees and putting up a Parking lot"

This is the back of our church today, for a couple of years now if you were not almost 1/2 an hour early for church you could not easily find a place to park. Since three congregations use the same building we often overlap,so we are very much in need of more parking





It is sad to take down trees we have enjoyed for over 20 years but so necessary in this case

Remember this the aftermath of our washer malfunctioning :


I am so glad we are slowly but surely recouping from our whole house flooding in September

The aftermath of a lot of hard work and adjusting

So sad and wish it weren't necessary -- and wouldn't be if people had better and extensive public transportation about to be able to call upon?

The roads will be less polluted given lots more take the public transport.
Happy Weekend Marcia :)

It's so sad to cut down trees but sometimes it's really necessary to accommodate to the needs of the human populations.

Gosh! your floor still looked damp. I almost had that experience when there was an unexpected flash flood here.

It's always sad when they start tearing down trees but I guess it's necessary sometimes.

It's a shame they had to do that but storms don't spare trees, sadly. I remember when a huge storm hit London 21 years ago, it brought down thousands of trees.

Happy weekend

So sad but these are forces of nature that we have to deal with :(

Progress can be brutal on nature.

It's good to hear, tho, about recovering and getting on with life...must be so hard and so difficult tho.

Mine's aftermath of after math. Come on over to see it if you have some time today.

Always sad to lose the green...but I'll take your word for it as being needed. Glad you're drying out...

Lynn said...

It's the case of preservation versus progress or in this case, necessity.

Great take on the theme. Now I'm singing - "They paved paradise and put up a parking lot with a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swingin' hot spot. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got till it's gone. They paved paradise and put up a parking lot." and my personal favorite line: "They took all the trees and put 'em in a tree museum and they charged the people a dollar and a half to see them."

Ugh. I'm so sad about those trees. I bet those neighbors are not too thrilled, either. :o(

Like Carver, I'm hearing the Joni Mitchell song in my head too! Nice take on the theme. Thanks for visiting mine and have a great weekend.

Is that the same church building I used to go to? Sorry about the house flood. Oh, and no the babysitting story on Bedelia's site didn't happen at your house, it was at the Brent's.

Love the hardwood and leather furniture! We had hardwood and leather furniture once ... we left the hardwood in New York, and as for the leather furniture, well, we all know what happened to that, right, Dennis?
