TIMBER!!

Early this morning around 2:00am Matt and I were awaken by a loud BOOM followed by shaking of our home. We were both out of bed in .2 seconds flat just staring at each other trying to figure out what just happened. Matt went down stairs to check on things and when he passed a window he saw a HUGE tree just lying on our back porch. We have been having TONS of rain and I guess it just got too heavy. When I called maintenance today and explained our situation they lady replied "You have a large branch on your porch?" "No, it's an entire tree" I explained!

This is where the tree was.....


This is where it is now!

How crazy, lucky it only hit the porch. Woohoo! I can't wait till the end of January. You better give me a call when you are out!
