I am not complaining though because we really need the rain here.
I am complaining just a bit about what the wind and rain produced. We have six 45ft or so Sycamore trees that surround our home. They provide shade but mostly are just the messiest trees I have ever encountered. They loose their leaves year round and bark in the summer and round fuzzy balls in the spring. Just constantly messy! Yet they are our trees and we like the shade. Unfortunately we are one less tree today.
Here is the top of the tree laying in the EMPTY field beside our house!
The only damage was to a few pickets of our fence. Rob and the neighbors are cutting it off here.
The real miracle here is that if it would have fallen into our home it would have caused a bunch of damage. Rob usually parks his car right were the tree fell, but on that day parked it in the other drive way. It missed my car by 2 feet. Lastly but MOST important is that my children were not playing in the field when it happened! The Lord is more than GOOD!
And the good news is Rob is going to build me a table that seats 12 out of the huge trunk that still remains and needs to be cut down.
