Got hit with some nasty storms tonight.
To say I got lucky would be an understatement. Had a 25 foot tree in my front yard about 4 feet from house, well the winds were hurricane strength in my area of Wisconsin uprooted it. Thankfully it fell to the left instead of forward onto my house or to the right where my neighbors were sitting in their living room or backwards right onto the power lines.
It managed to smash the 2 year old ramp I had installed as well so we get to rebuild that also.
As it fell it bounced right off the other tree in the yard sparing my Explorer from being smashed into bits.
What sucks is last year they raised my deductible for stuff like this to 2k from the 500 dollars I had it set at. So looks like a few people are going to come over and help remove it & hopefully rebuild the ramp as I need it as it is easier for me to get in and out of my house.
Also they are reporting that some areas had winds up to 90-100mph and my area was hit with around 78mph or so. For some reason I always knew that tree would come down. Just glad I am safe and so is both houses.
