WOW, my sanctuary came very close to losing its roof during that storm the other day.
I had no idea that my beloved room escaped such danger but had the tree broken at its root, it most definitely would have come down on my room.
Double fortunately, since we had no power for the duration, I wasn't in the room. Had I been, I'd have been sitting in that corner -- that's where my computer is!
So now, when I look out my nearest window, I see this reminder of the close call.
The troops have already been ordered in to clean up the mess of trees that fell. (Apparently there's a year's worth of firewood has to be brought in now ...)
At least I know we'll be warm this winter.
