Last Friday night, bad storms and tornadoes ripped through the STL area. Not nearly as bad as what happened (twice) in Oklahoma, but enough to cause substantial power outages. Some areas of town are STILL without power. Thankfully, we were out of town and our neighbors (the ones we like) kept us up to date on the power situation, which returned by late Sunday morning. We arrived home Sunday night, already knowing we’d have to throw out EVERYTHING from our fridge and freezer. There goes a few hundred dollars down the drain.
As I unlocked the door, I peeked in the backyard and saw this.
What you see is my neighbor’s dead tree (the ones we don’t like), laying on top of our shed. What you can’t see is the badly bent chain link fence that goes along with it. So now we’ve got to deal with insurance companies and our rude neighbors to get everything sorted out, the tree removed, and our property fixed. It could ALWAYS be worse and we were very fortunate in many ways, but allow me this one, tiny moment to have a pity-party about this mess.
Ok, pity-party over. Who wants a margarita?
