Lucky!

The old, large tree in our neighbor’s yard decided to crack in half and crash at 3:30 a.m.  So now, instead of the 4th of July we had planned (burgers, beers, finishing the bathroom, relaxation …) we will be borrowing Chris’ brother-in-law’s chainsaw and cleaning up.  I’m honestly still shaken up by this, but I know how lucky we are– a foot further and we could have lost our back porch, the wall to the wood room, even part of the front porch.  As it is now, a screen was ripped and the siding has some dents.  The garbage cans didn’t even fall over!  No one was hurt– including the baby birds.  We were so happy to see them squirming around in their nest this morning, and I got a photo of Mamma Bird on the railing with some worms in her mouth, ready to feed the babies. So … wish us luck on the clean up.
