Mending Road

Over at Congregation Etz Chayim, we are finally taking care of some major bumps we have in the driveway.
They were put there by a shamel ash, or Mexican Ash, Latin name of fraxinus uhdei, which is pronounced Frax-in-nuss You-dee-eye. The shamel ash roots got so large and thick under the asphalt that they pushed up the roadway at least 8 inches, and presented a considerable tripping hazard. So we are finally getting down to business, and fixing the road. Should be interesting.
