28. Argggghhhhh!!!!
Why is it that they send in wood chippers immediately? When a tornado downed most of the old trees on the campus of Gustavus Adolphus college a few years back, I called down to the campus as soon as I could get through to suggest that the make something, anything out of the wood.

I was going to tell them that whatever they made, alumni would buy it, raising money for repairs, maybe some work for citizens of St. Peter, etc. I was told that it was a good idea, but all the trees were already chipped up.
