    Default Yikes!!!!

    On Sunday we had a terrible terrible storm with 80 mile an hour shear winds....it got me!

    We are all okay, no one hurt...but my house...well...we will be out of it for at least three months...the tree was a lovely old maple ...65' 4' diameter and it did way much damage!!

    Thread moved. Yikes is right! Poor Mimi - thank God no one was hurt. It reminds me of when our house had two oaks fall on it during a tornado a few years ago - scary stuff!
    Whatever I feel like I wanna do. Gosh!

    Thanks G/F...scary is an understatement ....the babies were running around the house and we looked out that window(its the dining room) and Jules said "I see that tree moving" we all went in the kitchen...and BOOM! Almost had a freaking heart attack!

    (((((mimsy!)))))

    I'm so glad your family is okay! We escaped a 75 year old oak by mere inches a few years ago. Woke up and opened the window and there was the tree. We never woke up - and wouldn't have EVER woken up if that tree's angle has changed even the tiniest bit.

    Thanks so much for checking in - I hope you're breathing easy by now!

    My Goodness Mimi,

    Glad everyone is ok.

    That tree looked like it was filled with character.

    What a shock to have all that character come crashing through the your home. On a brighter note, perhaps the tree enjoyed meeting a few cousins in the form of your roof beams as it fell.

    Sorry for my bad humor.

    I do pray the rebuilding process goes smoothly for you.

    What powerful winds and a frightening experience. I'm glad no-one was hurt. The first picture does show the solid stone house, and the size of the tree. That maple must have been really beautiful.

    I hope the next three months go smoothly.

    I am glad to hear that nobody was hurt. Hopefully you will be able to go back home sooner than those 3 months.
