The mega tree took 4 hours to put up this year. John had his brother, son, and nephew helping him. This is their second year doing the mega tree.
The best part of today's construction was that they had fun putting it together! It's made from electrical conduit, rebar, a flagpole, and a few other homemade parts. We're having wind gusts of 30 mph right now, and the mega tree is doing just fine. The inflatable blew off the roof and all our blowmolds blew over though. The full trash can fell into the pool and all the cat5E cables just got soaked. Argh.
