Rough Weekend

Due to a storm that went through Friday around 6:15 p.m., I don’t have a post for my A.I series. There was a lot of rain, some hail and the wind gusted to about 100 mph. Not much thunder or lightning. There was no warning or siren.

Part of a tree landed on our house with a loud boom. My trampoline flew about 300 feet. It damaged our fence, and I’m seriously grateful nothing else happened. The storm created a lot of work and chaos. The power went out of course. It doesn’t take much to knock the power out my house in the first place. That’s why we have a generator, but it doesn’t run the AC. So it was a hot night, listening to a roaring generator. A big weeping willow tree also lost a big limb, and almost hit my son’s car.

However, everyone is okay and there is only some minor damage to the fence and the gutters. Instead, of a trampoline, I got a new small pool. I’ve never had a pool fly away, so it seems safe.

Hoping for a more relaxing week. 

Why I added to the work I have no idea, but it's done.

Spotted two deers Sunday Morning.

Glad damage wasn't worse. We've had some storms here this past weekend, but thankfully nothing that bad. Definitely take a pool over a trampoline.

The storms weren't bad where I live. At least there wasn't any serious damage.

Eek. Glad you got out without injury. Sorry about the damage.

Yikes! I'm glad you did not suffer personal injury. Sounds like a micro-burst of some kind.
