We Had Some WIND Through Our Neck of the Woods~

And the wind blew so hard ~




~ what WAS a wonderful shade tree is down. So sad!




I was home alone, and I picked up my three potted trees 2 times each.



The window shade was beat into pieces and it had to be collected from across the back yard.


When I called Larry and Lydia to tell them about the major tree falling, they both thought I was talking about the potted Ficus on the front porch.



They both told me I sounded more excited about the accomplishment of hanging up the two towel racks, than the 25 foot tree falling, lol






Now, this is my neighbor, Toney, and his son, working the tree over this morning. Yes, folks, you can have great neighbors even in Southern California...!











We have a bit more to get done, now. Hmm.

Blessings, Pokey

  1. Wow! Sorry about your tree! We had a bad storm here one time and when it was over, the neighbor's hay feeder for their horses was in our driveway. When I called the neighbor she tried to tell me it was just a garbage can. I told her to look out her window and then she believed me! Scary thing is it had to have been a mini-tornado because straight line winds couldn't have moved it. I'm just glad it landed in the driveway and not on the house!

  3. Oh my...oh my! So glad someone didn't get hurt when it fell. It does make one stand in awe when a big tree...years old bites the dust.

  8. I'm glad nobody was hurt and that your house wasn't hit. We had a tree come down on our house in the summer of 2009 and it did $30,000 worth of damage. It was very scary when it hit the house, too. Now I am very nervous when we get high winds in the area.

  12. The wind can do some damage...it seem the trees don't have good roots anymore they blow over so easy...good it wasn't on your house and really good to have good neighbors that will be there for you. God Bless Trish

  13. We went through this in 2007...our entire neighborhood had trees down, shingles missing and we all pulled together as neighbors should...how blessed you are!

  14. That is sad to lose a nice tree - glad no one was near it when it fell! I have always hated wind storms and have been close to but not in tornadoes twice. Michigan can get bad storms but there aren't nearly as many as where I've lived before. Looks like you have good neighbors and a good neighborhood and the cleanup appears to be going along well.

  16. Wow, that was some wind! How thoughtful of your neighbors to help out! I'm telling you, there's nothing like great neighbors that are always willing to lend a hand. Glad nothing else was damaged.
