Crash! Bang! Boom! Rip! Scrape! Tear… Thud!

Before the ice storm hit the other day, my sister asked me to post pictures of it.  She said sometimes you can get really pretty pictures in an ice storm.

Somehow, I don’t think this is what she meant.


You can see the neighbor’s play house in this one.

In this one you can see that while the fence is toast, the gate is still standing.

Below is a picture of the tree a couple of years ago.  The picture is deceiving because the tree on the left is about 10 feet from the camera while the big one on the right is about 50 feet from the camera.  The big one is on the other side of the creek, but you can’t see the creek in this picture.  There is a good sized tree behind the big tree and it is still standing.

We had talked about taking this one down, but both Dh and I thought that we would lose branches from it not that it would come up from the roots.  We try to get the dead trees down so that we don’t have this problem, but this one was only half dead.  I guess we learned our lesson.

Overall, we have a lot of praise to give to God. The tree did not hit the house more directly.  It could have been much, much worse.  As it is, I think that the thing that got the most damage was my nerves!  I was on the other side of the wall (where it hit) when the tree came down.  I heard it hit the house and scrape its way down.  Very scary!

We have people coming later in the week to inspect the roof and see just how much damage there is.
