Excitement in the middle of the night

Last night at 3am, I heard a noise but wasn’t sure what it was.  Bill was going to leave for Missouri this morning to visit his mother and when he started to pack up my car to drive at 4:30 am, he saw that a tree had hit the house.  He brought the suitcase back in the house and called to say he wasn’t coming.  I called the insurance company this morning and we are waiting for a tree guy right now.

Here are a couple of photos of the roots of the tree – obviously rotten.

We are lucky it didn’t break though the roof but I am sure there is some damage.

  4. wow you are lucky, very lucky. Years ago a huge tree went right through my sister-in-laws house-horrible mess.
    We had bad storms last night and a big cherry tree went through our back fence--sheesh. The insurance will take care of it (thank goodness) and we were just happy it wasn't any of the trees closer to the house.

  5. I feel your pain. Last Friday we had a tree fall against our house. No damage to the house, but it hit our AC unit. Still waiting for it to be replaced, and it is supposed to be 100 tomorrow!

  9. Hoping any damage is minimal. Had a tree fall onto and into my house in Kentucky a few years ago during that horrible ice storm, power was out for two weeks and the tree went right through the wall into the laundry room. Insurance took care of the damagees and luckily it was our "vacation" home at the lake so we were snug and warm at our real home in Indiana while all this was going on. But a tree on the house is never a good thing, is it! xo

  11. Beautiful house, bad tree. It looks like it is mostly leaning so should be too bad. We had one come down right beside our house during a hurricane. I focused on what it could have done rather than what it did. Do you suppose it was weakened during the tornados a couple of weeks ago and it didn't take too much to push it over? Glad you were both safe and that your husband hadn't left yet.
