**I am trying to fix my blog and wordpress because of issues so you can see photos again. I will be back to posting again when I get it straightened out. Excuse the look while this happens**
Thursday turned out to be pretty eventful. It’s been a crazy weather week, that’s for sure. We had a few inches of snow early in the week and it was really cold. Today was warm enough to bike, so I got out this morning before the rain came.
There was a bit of snow in the shaded parts of the path, but it was mostly clear.
I had stopped here because my account supervisor texted me. Sigh… Can’t ever get away 😀
It was really getting windy, too. I did 12 miles and it was a tough slog! But I biked.
The rainy weather came after noon and then about 4:00, the rain started coming really hard and the wind picked up. It got to the point where I started to become very alarmed that it could possibly be a tornado and I was worried about all the trees in our yard. Then it was gone and there was a lot of damage.
The tree across the street:
Our fence took a beating. When I first took a picture, I didn’t even notice our neighbor’s garage upended!
This is the house with the flipped up garage. We talked with the owner and she is just happy her house is fine. Like she said “It’s just a garage”. We offered her the use of any of our tools and stuff if she needed it, along with our labor.
This is a monster tree that went down and just missed the owner’s house. The branches were covering the front porch, but the house looked okay.
We saw a few trees leaning on roofs, but it seemed not any major living space damage and nobody seemed hurt, thank goodness.
Lots of cleanup to be done and roads are closed in spots from trees.
Our poor fence is toast. It was old and we were hoping to get another couple years out of it, but I guess not. We may not be able to replace it this year. Insurance isn’t likely to be worth the amount our premium will go up to have them pay for it.
We have this part tied back up with rope now until we take it down very soon.
Now I will have a sunnier garden than last year :O
