We Were Warned!

They told us it was going to be windy!!

Look at my pretty hawthorne tree,
 what a shame to lose such a large limb with it in full bloom


Then again, it could have been worse, 
this is my next door neighbor's car under that fallen tree!

This damage is nothing compared to the damage my wife can cause when she gets windy.

We had a similar storm Sunday evening. We only lost a few limbs but there was some horrible damge around town. We had a graduation party on Monday so I had a bit of yard re-cleaning to do.

Glad you were spared the major damage.

Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny, consume you it will.

The wind was definitely intense, I can only imagine it gathered more Strength when it hit the ocean after being here?

Susan said...

Oh my! I'm soo sorry! I hate these summer winds! I hope your pretty tree recovers:) Have a great day!

Winds sucks--literally. We get a lot of it here and it's never fun. At least you were spared the major damage.

Just found you over on the Life 2 us Site because of your "What was I thinking" and I had to come over and follow immediately. I had my girl at 44 and now at 47 am having the time of my life being her mom.

Delighted to find a kindred mommy!
