Last night was a wild night here with very high winds and rain. The rain wasn't the real issue with us - it was the wind!
When we got up at 4AM to do our bidness, it was very scary and very windy. Mom told us to hurry so that we could get back inside and be safe and we did. About 1/2 hour later when mom was on the computer writing to Aunt Lydia, she heard a C-R-A-C-K and then a BOOM!
These are the branches that mom heard. It's a huge mangled mess and the only thing good about it is that it smells wonderful - like Christmas again because the tree is a pine tree.
That tree top fell. It wiped out our white lilac! It's still windy here but not as bad as it was this morning. This morning, the winds sounded like a freight train.
Look what I found on our morning walkie. Coffee! I carried it all the way home but never drank a drop!
So until next time.......
Love ya lots,
