    Before I got home from work yesterday afternoon, a fast moving violent storm went through and left leaves where they should not be! I drove into my driveway and looked up and saw leaves, lots of them on the top of the peak of my house! I have a really steep roof on a story and a hald house built in 1904 with an extra room on the back. The old black walnut tree that took over the house used to reside in the far opposite corner about 15 feet from the house. It is now on top of the addition and peeking over the roof! It knocked bricks off the rear chimney and made it difficult to use the back door. I have cleared it away so my dogs and I can use the back door and now I am waiting for call backs from tree people. There was lots worse damage in the area, and I am not critical. Still have power and just 4 little holes in the fascia in the back. I live alone with my critters, so I get to do all the clean up and........ :?
    Didn't have time to post pictures earlier today where I have wireless connections so will post them tomorrow. Just another big mess to keep me away from my quilting.

    Thanks for the positive thoughts! We are having a cool down today, light rain this morning and still overcast. Heavy sweatshirt weather. No call backs yet, but I am not critical. There were branches through roofs and windows for some. I will wait and clean up what I can when it dries a bit.

    Sorry to hear about the mess and the holes but glad it didn't take your whole house down!! Wind and thunderstorms can be such a big pain in the rear!

    We have had some flooding here in St. Louis, just last fall! 2 people were swept away when a drainage "creek" overflowed. That happened only a couple miles south of where I live. They had some flash flooding yesterday, but nothing major this time! Thank God, this one was just property damage. :lol:

    Sorry to hear about that. We're certainly having strange weather this spring, aren't we? We keep having hail storms here.
