When we first moved into this house, one of the reasons we did was because of a beautiful old oak that stood in the front yard. Then, for a lot of reasons having nothing to do with the house, we decided to uproot and put the house on the market. Apparently the oak decided to uproot too, or rather a wet June followed by a severe thunderstorm decided for it.
We were really fond of that tree. We originally moved into the house in December of ’98 and Carol named the place Winter Oak in its honor. It’ll just be a house once we’re gone. Winter Oak has already left.
