    That’s very sad. It’s still a beautiful street. Our dining room window is gone from a flying gazebo!

  2. Mary W says:

    are y’all okay though?

  3. suburbancorrespondent says:

    Lots of trees down here, too. It’s breathtaking, actually, seeing the power of that wind.

  4. Steph says:

    We had the same thing happen here about a week ago, there is something so sad when a large tree falls.

  5. Amy says:

    I hope the fam and your house are fine. Super sad to see those trees down. I love having old trees in our yard.

  6. Becky says:

    There’s something so sad about seeing a downed tree, even when you know that it’s just mother nature’s way.

  7. Kristina says:

    The storms have been awful everywhere lately it seems. Our neighbors tree got struck by lightning last week, but last nite’s was even worse. I’m sure everyone has heard about the 4 boy scouts who were killed and dozens more injured? I feel awful for their parents - they heard on the news coverage of the weather that the camp had been hit. As if losing a child isn’t bad enough, but to have had to wonder for hours if your child was ok is even worse.

  8. Missy says:

    We have had just awful storms around here lately, and we actually lost a tree in our yard on Tuesday night - it makes me so sad to see the damage!

  9. Denise says:

    It is sad. A few years ago we lost about 30 big trees on our lot. And amazingly only a very little damage a ding on the roof corner and a ding on the van roof! It is sad the gap the missing trees leave!

  10. elizabeth says:

    lots of strong winds and tons of rain here. i worry about flying gazebos and unsecured sheds, as Michelle pointed out - it happens.

    hope you are all okay…

  11. Laura says:

    My neighbors lost a couple of trees but as luck would have it my eyesore of a corncrib is still standing;)

  12. Jamie says:

    Hope you all came through the storms safe and sound!

  13. Kristi says:

    Here too. It is unbelievable the power of mother nature. I love watching the storms though as they pass. I’m just glad we are all o.k.

  14. mary anne says:

    We get straight line winds through our neck of the burgh at least once a year. It is amazing how fast the undergrowth takes off once it comes out of the shadow of the big old growth trees. Still… its sad to see them fall. Hope you and yours are all intact.

  15. Lori says:

    I’m so sorry. I hope there was nothing ruined on your house.

  16. J from Ireland says:

    Oh God, I hope you are all ok. Makes me thankful to live with the wet, drizzly rain over here.

  17. Carolyn says:


  18. Heather's Garden says:

    I was thinking of you when I saw the tornado warning on Tuesday. And then I worried when you didn’t post. Glad to see you made it through the storm okay. Or at least you and 4 of your kids did.

    Chris says: We all made it through just fine. We didn’t even lose any big trees of our own.

  19. Asianmommy says:

    Oh no! What a shame!

  20. Dani says:

    Wow. Did any of those trees take out your power lines? A lot of communities lost power around here but no major injuries, thank God.

  21. kat says:

    i assume that since you didn’t say anyone was hurt, you’re all ok.

    very sad about the trees.

  22. evie says:

    I’m sorry you had such a bad storm. What area do you live in.
    It’s so beautiful there. I live in California, but grew up on the east coast, and miss it so.

  23. Frugal Carol says:

    I hate to see the loss of trees but on the other hand… I see beautiful fire wodd! Free fire wood!!

    Same issues here…. grateful we have power. May the storms mellow and the summer bring strength to the trees which remain.
