Just thought I’d share what happened here a little before 5:00 a.m. Friday, January 4. We were startled out of a sound sleep by what sounded like a big crash. It had been raining off and on for days and hubby thought we had been awakened by lightning or thunder. We went all around inside the house thinking the cats had knocked some things over and couldn’t see anything. Checking outside, it was so dark, we couldn’t see anything and our outside lights don’t really illuminate much. But when we got up and it was light out — man, the Lord was watching over us. A huge tree had fallen right next to the house. Maybe not so unusual in the woods. But the unusual part and the miracle part is that it didn’t fall according to gravity (downhill). How does a tree fall sideways against gravity? If it had followed its natural course, it would have hit the house and probably done some serious damage. It fell sideways completely missing the house and just clipping a corner of the carport. The carport did sustain some damage but not serious. And no damage to the cars. I’m just in awe and so humbled. The pictures don’t do it justice. Next comes the cleanup and repair.
God is good!
The damage as seen from different angles:
The road home
Almost heaven — I mean, almost home!
Up the driveway and we’re home! 🙂
