Big Scary Monster on Mancat Monday

Hello evfurryone,

Here in the Midwest we had some very mixed up weather this weekend, starting on Friday; so I spent most of my time inside running from window to window and then to the doors to make sure everything was doing OK.

The winds blew and blew and blew really hard and then it rained - by Saturday it was really cold and we even saw some snow. Yesterday was chilly - but the sun was out for a little while in the afternoon - then it rained all night.

This is what Happened Friday when the wind was blowing so hard and furious. A piece of this Fir tree broke off last year - so I guess it was no surprise that the rest would fall this year. It only grazed the shed as it fell and there is some damage - but we are grateful that it's not as much as it could have been.

So there I was this morning - outside checking out my domain - when this big noisy and scary monster showed up. I ran for the door and thankfully Pellie let me in before it gobbled me up.
What the heck????????? Two men came with it - They talked to Sir Knight so it must have been alright for that monster to come to our house - but I still didn't feel safe around it.

He sure is big and just look at those teeth!

The men worked very hard cleaning up the broken part of the tree and then cut the rest of it down to the ground.

The big monster kept busy putting all the big logs into the truck so the guys could haul it away.

And now my backyard is all back to normal - minus the one tree and the long grass that Sir Knight said he has to get out and mow tomorrow.

While we are happy to have balance restored at our house we know that many people down south had things a lot rougher than us - and we pray for them and the long recovery process they will go through to return to normal.

I sure am glad you all are okay!!! Fortunately those storms passed us by but lots of others not too far from here were not as fortunate.

Glad you didn't get any more damage. I have been concerned for those, in the storm areas. -sigh-

Gentle hugs,

ACK! First the tree and then a monster? We'd be under the bed for DAYS!
