We're still alive:)
Ok, quick recap of last night's events. It was stormy all day and there was a wind advisory issued for our area because gusts were up to 60 mph. Steve got the generator ready and flashlights out and we all played with the flashlights in the dark in the masterbedroom for a while. Head back into the livingroom and about 20 minutes later, around 7:15pm, we hear a loud boom and the house shakes. I immediately send the girls to the bench by the front door and we see the tree sticking through the hallway ceiling. We thought that was bad enough but were in for a big surprise when we checked out the rest of the house. Our master bathroom is pretty much ruined, just a few bits of ceiling left. Steve and our friend, Travis spent over an hour on the roof, in the rain last night putting a tarp over all the holes. We slept in the front half of the house and luckily the rain pretty much stopped over night so things didn't get any worse. Now we're just waiting to hear back from insurance agents this morning. Keep your fingers crossed that fixing this won't be anymore difficult that it needs to be (yeah, wishful thinking). The tree is in our neighbors yard and one of his other trees fell on our other neighbor's house two years ago. Nice.
