After the storm........


after the weekend......
it's Monday.
Reality is here once again......

It's time to deal with what Mother Nature bestowed upon us.
A micro-burst touched down in Judiland during a very intense storm on Friday afternoon.
Lots of power outages, lots of downed trees, lots of damage.
Thankfully, we are all safe....but here's what I came home to.....

This is a huge tree that sat at the corner of my street (next door to me). It was a very old and beautiful tree that brought beauty to the entrance of our little neighborhood. I heard that the wind swooped in and just pulled it out of the ground like a small twig. It blocked the entry way to our street. Even though I was only several feet from my house (at this intersection), I couldn't get there!
So, trying to get home was no fun!

Then, when I did get home......this is what was waiting for me at my house! The neighbor's tree crashed into our property---across our side fence,damaging one section of it, crashing into our trampoline, ravishing our deck and taking out the back fence.....
It took apart Toni's trampoline, it whipped our deck furniture all over the backyard and into our driveway and covered our entire backyard with debris......

Happy Monday......
