Well, it's not really a repair, just an alleviation of the symptoms until my handyman can get here. I discovered today that our most recent high winds left the fence leaning drunkenly out over the sidewalk.
Rebar and nylon dog ropes will keep the pedestrians safe for now.
Handyman informs me that he has worked on nothing but fences for the last month and a half, thanks to numerous "wind events." I'm more glad than ever that I had that hollow bee tree taken down.
