It is an eerie sound when you hear a tree falling in your yard, but extremely terrifying when you realize it is going to hit your house and you are in the room it will fall on! We lost a battle with nature this weekend.

It was close to midnight when we first heard the crackling of this tree breaking apart and hitting the other trees on it’s way down.
Thankfully no one was hurt and I was able to get out of the room with only small pieces of my ceiling falling on my head as I was running out of the room.
Our family is counting our blessings today that while this tree was falling from the wooded lot next to us that it hit two other trees on it’s way down that slowed it down and kept it from coming completely through the house.
As of now we know that there is a large hole in our roof, some of the trusses are broken, and the overhang and gutters were completely torn off. For interior damage, our bedroom wall has at least five cracks in it, the master bedroom ceiling has a hole in it, and our master bathroom is leaking into the basement bathroom whether from plumbing damage or venting damage.
Without overhead lighting in our master bedroom it is hard to photograph the interior wall damage but this is just one of the cracks in our wall.
The positive side to most of this is that we will get a new roof, that we knew we would need to replace in the next five years anyway, and I always hated the popcorn ceiling texture in the master bedroom anyway.
So even though we have a lot of construction ahead of us in the next few weeks, it is all good.
God is good all the time, and all the time, God is good!
