Tuesday morning about 12:30 am as I lay in bed reading I heard
this awful roaring of wind, with a large craaaccckkkk. At which
time I thought hmmm let's see think it is now time to go the
the basement and hide in the corner.. Now where is that cat....
Lets see need to grab the laptop so I can see when to come back
up.. Hope the WiFi does not get wiped out.. Now where is that
Well after getting up and dressing I went out to see only a
small amount of movement in the trees and nothing that really
looked basement worth... Maybe time to turn on the TV. All the
local stations were in Danger Will Robinson mode. Seems a
severe thunder storm was coming through the area and St. Charles
had wind gusts of 58 mph.. That seems like a pretty serious
wind gust. The storm was on track to move through the area in
another 20 or so minutes.
After getting up the next morning I looked out in the back yard
and remembered the craaaaccckkkk from the night before. Seems
that one of the trees in the back yard had the the top broken
off.. Oh well lets see do I need a chain saw.....
Think I might be better off having a tree service do it since it
is still attached to the top of the tree. O bother......
But hey it is really pretty good. I have not had any hail come
uninvited to visit like some of my friends and the tree did not
kill any fences or land in someone else's yard....
