January 25th, 2015 this staghorn fell for the 3rd time. It fell in 2013 and 2014. Happy Anniversary on Jan. 25, 2018 celebrating 3 years on the ground
.... the good news is, IT LOVES being on the ground, it weighed about 100 pounds when it fell and now may way 20 pounds more and is healthy.
The reason is, The Man will not let me ask someone to help him hang it again and it is way to heavy for a one person job. The last time he hung it, he used a come-a-long, which is a contraction that removes engines from cars.... In 2014 that worked with just him and me standing screaming watch out its falling. These days we need 2 men and me to scream... The Rehang also included a stepladder that I had to hold while I screamed.
these photos are a few of the blindshots with my cell phone, above is our neighbors fence that IMRA blew down, that is now back up. With the winds from Irma if this had been in the tree it might have become a missile through our front windows. So Good news it has laid on the ground 3 years and did not crash into our house.
