This post isn't about the girls...but I couldn't resist sharing this picture of our neighbors' uprooted tree! You might recognize that this house is the same floor plan as ours. And, until last Thursday, it had a tree in approximately the same location in their front yard as the enormous hickory (?) tree in ours! We had a storm blow through...with strong, strong winds and heavy rain, lightning, thunder...the whole works!
From our front porch two houses over, I watched this tree fall with a gigantic CRASH!!!! Miraculously, not only was no one hurt, but it completely missed the house! Plus, despite the tree falling across their driveway, they had parked their cars on the street that day...so those were spared as well! Crazy!
