Storm damage

Last night we had a bad storm go through our area and we lost a huge limb out of our tree, just missing my shop/craft room.  We were very blessed that we had no damage to our house or buildings.  I feel bad though as this branch held the kids swing.  Jon thinks he can lower it on the broken off branch though, or we will have to find another tree to hang it on,  The kids  play on it all the time when they are visiting.

This certainly is minor compare to what so many have gone through with all the storms and fires throughout our nation.  We praise God that this is all we had.



 Can you see the swing?  Jon thinks he can lower it so the kids can still use it.  I sure hope so!!

There is a broken branch still wedged in the next tree .  We will have to get it down so that it doesn't come down and hurt someone.

Glad all are safe, you sure didn't need any more trouble in your family. My goodness that's close to where we park sometime, I could maybe have had a new car. lol

Holy Cow ... that was a close on! As you said, glad it wasn't anything worse! I've had a swing or two on that swing ... sure hope Jon can fix it! Glad you're safe!

So glad that everyone is okay. Been in those storms back East and summer storms can turn into severe damages any where. Take care.
