It Was Fun While It Lasted

We had a huge wind storm on Wednesday and a huge pine tree in our backyard was up rooted and landed on our swing set. A tree also fell and landed right next to my car. My car is fine, only a few scratches. I am so thankful that no tree fell on our house and that my boys are happy and healthy.

You can see where my car was parked, the only part of the black top that doesn't have any broken limbs on it. The tree literally landed all around my car, but not on it. God is good!

Oh no! Thank goodness no one was hurt! That wind storm was crazy!!! Will your home owners insurance cover the swing set?

Julie, the same thing happened to our playground - a wind storm picked it up and mangled it! Frustrating isn't it - but like you said, they're only things!
And our deductible was more than the playground cost! :)

WOW!! That is really close!! Praise God that it was not worse! We have a lot of trees around our house and I am always afraid of one falling on our house!! Glad y'all are OK

Oh my! I hate that the boys' playground was destroyed. Glad to hear you all were not hurt!
