The damage revealed by daylight

This is going to take a while to clean up:

Pictures just can’t give you the sense of scale needed here. Near the center and too the left, you can see a portion of this tree that is still standing.

Here it is from the other side looking up hill (so you can’t see the mess in the front yard). That splotch of blue by the tree is me.

      Fortunately, the tree fell between the power lines and our house. It did take out the back window and door of the van though. Insurance company will send someone out tomorrow.

      I think the only time I remember experiencing winds like we had last night was during a hurricane. Gusts were over 60mph and continued in the 40’s until sunrise.

    I lived in gulf coast Louisiana my first 21 years, and this reminds me of that big hurricane that came through in the ’60s.

    Wow. Well, you can prep all this to sell as firewood. Make the whole thing work out positive, right?

    I’m not too far from you and I feel pretty lucky too. No damage, but I certainly didn’t sleep with all the wind blowing around, afraid of what I would wake up to in the morning.
