A BIT OF A CATASTROPHE

Hello y'all.  Wow, there has been SOOOO much going on in my life lately that I have not had the time to really do much playing or posting.....Though I have been keeping up with all your posts....Between planning and decorating for the Mother-Daughter banquet (that post HERE) and now for a graduation, and trying to find the time to finish resurfacing the driveway, I have been a very busy girl and....earlier this week I found myself a whole lot BUSIER....busier that is cleaning up after our little...HUGE...catastrophe...

Can you tell what this is?...



...We had a storm come through early Wednesday morning...the strong winds blew over my GINORMOUS red oak tree in the side yard...that wouldn't have been so bad except for not only was it my absolute most FAVORITE tree in the entire yard...but it squished...by squished, I mean completely FLATTENED our two vehicles parked in the drive way...yes, you heard me right...both our vehicles totalled...BY AN OAK TREE...




...this is surely a catastrophe for us....since these are the only vehicles we have but...they are replaceable...after seeing the tree and where it fell, I immediately started thanking our wonderful God that it did not land on the house...as my daughter was sleeping right upstairs...I know without a doubt that it was the hand of God that kept us safe...



...to the left, the house...and to the right, the garage...neither received so much as a SCRATCH...as I said my daughter was sleeping upstairs...she never awoke until it was time to get up for school...my son (because he's still afraid of the dark) was sleeping on the sofa near my bedroom...he also stayed asleep through all the COMMOTION...



...now we are just waiting for the insurance adjuster to come assess the damage...the problem....the adjusters are so busy because of damage from tornados in Joplin, MO and other areas....our appointment for the adjuster to come is not until June 14....two whole weeks...so we are waiting...ever so patiently...NOT....

...anyway, we feel so blessed that our lives and home were spared through this little disaster...and I am kind of excited to be looking for a new car...looking for something a little more gas efficient...I was only two payments away from having the van paid off...so I figured I would be in the market for a new car soon anyway....

I am linking up today to Show & Tell Friday @ My Romantic Home...and I will be back soon with car reports and some pics of the graduation decor...STAY TUNED!!
