Mother Nature’s Surprise
Published on Thursday, February 12, 2009 by

Today we had up to 40 mph winds.  My only worry was how seriously huge my hair was getting by the end of the day.  But when I got home, I found there was a bit more to think about.  Let’s see.  Insurance. Deductible. I could never afford to replace a shed. Cutting up a tree.  DEDUCTIBLE…  Did I mention cutting up a tree? Hmmm, and about the giant HOLE going through the shed. And how would I even get it OFF the shed – it is much heavier and bigger than it looks. 

But I refuse to stress.  After all, it happened when there were no children in the back yard.  So I will now look at this tree and consider myself blessed!  (Until I look at my big hair again…)

    OK, well I have an update. This tree is now an official permanent landmark in our backyard. Our deductible is $3,000. And I refuse to touch a chain saw – after all, I cut myself almost weekly with household kitchen knives! So the tree remains on top of the shed. I think it kind of looks nice, don’t you?
