I was sitting in front of the computer this afternoon when I heard lots of thunder and rain. I got up and peeked out the front window to see how hard it was raining and yelled for the girls to come check it out. Just as I opened the front door I saw the whole thing happen.
So you can see just how massive this tree is. Chris is not a small guy. He’s about 6’3" and probably weighs 225 pounds (forgive me if I’m wrong about your weight, honey…it’s not like you’re a girl, though so you probably won’t care even if I am wrong).
You can see the front of the Jeep on the left. Poor thing!
Guess we won’t be going out to dinner tonight…
(Because it was pouring I took these with my not so hot cell phone camera, but you get the idea The tree extends all the way into our neighbors yard. Thank goodness we were already out of the car and in the house or that it didn’t happen on a day when we were playing in the front yard.)
When the girls made it to the front door, Lucee said, "Oh no, Mom!
Da huge, huge, huge twee bwoked in half and it cwushed da Jeep. We gotta call Daddy." Daddy and the insurance man.
Not thank goodness, thank God. So glad none of you were harmed. And, the good news is that this will be covered by the comprehensive portion of your car insurance. No rate increase!
