Web logs and fallen trees

A tree near my house has fallen and blocked one of our favorite footpaths. Time to get the chainsaw out :-). Things were going well until the saw suddenly stopped dead with the chain pinched tight by the stricken branch. Hmm. After getting angry and swearing had failed I realised that the saw was going to have to be freed by a smaller, hand saw. I felt the humiliation of the bigger saw. Like a mighty and powerful minister trapped in a doorway, he could do nothing but roar and wait while civil servants lowered floorboards and trimmed joists. Everyone needs friends, even the big and powerful.
