Storm

Before

Friday morning we had a terrible storm go through our area. It wasn’t a tornado, but they have said we had 85 mile per hour straight line winds. There are so many beautiful trees damaged and destroyed. My favorite tree on my place is, or I guess I should say was, the maple in my front yard. It was split in two and had to be cut down. It also blew over the privacy fence in the back yard and knocked some big limbs out of the trees back there. One of them fell on my car and put a hole in the windshield. I can’t park my car in the one car garage that we have, because my husband has to park his old Corvette in it! So Monday is dealing with the insurance agents. Such fun! This morning something happened that did cheer me up. I won Myra’s giveaway! She is going to make me an x-bag. How great is that???

OH my goodness!!! That is major bunch of damage... I am sure that lovely tree will be missed, and like you needed to put effort into fixing your privacy fence this spring!?! That damage on your windshield is exactly what we ended up with one year from a tree branch... I hope they fix it up quickly for you...

At least my contribution for your day cheered you up some!!! That is good! 8-)

Hope you have a better day today...
