February 5, 2010, C.Hofberger Fuel Company made a last minute fuel delivery before the February 5th snow storm. That was MUCH appreciated.
In the course of making the delivery the tank truck, which had to back up by the yellow square in the first picture below, maneuvered to back over the rain garden — apparently twice by the tracks visible in the photos — and smash the rather pricey magnolia in the middle of the garden.
THAT WAS NOT NICE.
Couple of additional points: this was NOT the first time the Hofberger driver went through this garden — and we complained the first time.
The driver is an experienced driver to this address.
Until a couple years ago, there was a 120-year-old oak tree in this spot of the driveway, and no one drove over it during the 120 years.
