First Day of Summer Storms

During the first severe storm of the summer, a huge, tall tree (about 50 feet tall) was pushed into our house.  Thankfully, it hit the corner of the house/roof.  If it was angled 5 feet to the north, it would have taken out both of our cars!  We still are concerned because the tree is hovering over our teenagers' bedrooms.  They get to enjoy "camping" in the basement until the tree is removed.

Now the fun begins as my husband is on the phone with the insurace company and tree services.  We need to have this removed as quickly as possible, so we can cover the damage with a tarp until the repairs can be made. 



  1. Wow! We have had terrible storms around our area but thankfully we have been spared. So glad no one was hurt.

  2. The storms have been terrible this year. Thankful everyone is okay.

  3. Scary! I hope the insurance company is co-operating.

  4. So glad that no one was hurt....

  5. The tree was finally removed after 7 days! Now we are awaiting the approval for a new roof from the insurance company. Apparently, we had hail damage on the roof, too. We'll see what happens! For now, we have a beautifully blue-tarped roof!

  6. Yikes, that would have been pretty scary!
