No Damage Done!It could’ve been worse!

Oct 20, 2019

I was sitting here, getting ready to do the Carefree Saturday post when I felt a thump and heard a crash! I asked my son if that was thunder, he said yeah.

Just as this happened, my boyfriend had walked outside…he said he heard the crash and at first thought it was an accident on the interstate – a tractor trailer or something. (We live that close! The house has actually shook when a tractor trailer has blown a tire.) When he looked, he saw the leaves on top of the house – and came and got me!

So, you remember the tree that came down in the wind storm/straight wind we had the other day? (You can read about that by clicking here.) Of course, I had to grab the camera! I grabbed both of them.

We really thought we had a little bit of time before we had to take the rest of the tree down. I mean, the first part broke just the other day. On the 17, which was Thursday! Maybe the weight of the rain helped bring it down! There’s a little bit of a breeze, but…when a tree is damaged, it doesn’t take much!

Luckily, we’ve got a new roof and most of the weight of the tree is away from the house.It could’ve been so much worse!

I’d actually been thinking about adding some windows (2) to that end of the house, to allow for more air flow. Now I’m glad we haven’t! Or I didn’t, or how ever that goes.

Mt boyfriend’s gonna go up on the roof – after it’s done raining – and take some pics and cut the branches away. And we’re gonna have to get some one out to cut the rest of the tree down.

You don’t know how thankful I am right now!

  • It could be so much worse! It could’ve actually done damage. We could’ve been outside, under the tree when it came down. (If it hadn’t been raining, my boyfriend was going to mow.)
  • No one was hurt! Like I just stated…we could’ve been out there when it came down!

So, I’m not really gonna do my Carefree Saturday today like I usually do. But I will add the photos!

I don’t know what the flowers are, but they’re still blooming!

It didn’t take us very long to get all the branches picked up from the wind storm the other day.

Tulip poplar, Silver Maple Tree and leaves

It’s been so dry that the leaves aren’t as vibrant as they should be! The rain we’re getting now will certainly help!

We cleaned out the chimney! It actually wasn’t that bad!

Well, we looked at it – the brush I got is too big. so I need to take it back and get a smaller one.

What a weekend it has been! And I’m still able to laugh, no tears – things could be so much worse!
