A Tree Fell On Our House!

We had a microburst, estimated to be around 80 mph, and a tree toppled onto our house Wednesday evening. It is supposed to be removed tomorrow. I am stressed to the max because these storms have kept coming. It is pouring down and the thunder is jangling my nerves.

We had a microburst in a town close by. It did horrible damage to one little section of town. I hope everything goes smoothly and your stress level decreases soon!

I also worry about that when there's a hard rain! I remember when that happened to the other part of my (rented) condo. It went all the way into their bedroom and almost killed them. It looks like it didn't go through? I hope it didn't! I'm glad you're ok, but that is really scary!
