how not to celebrate father's day!

This week end should have been all about father's day
and celebration, 
but on Thursday afternoon, right after the kids and I made it home,
this happened:

It turned out to be a little tornado!
Here is the description from Wikipedia:
 "A weak, but fast moving and long-tracked tornado downed many trees, several of which fell onto more than 14 homes and several vehicles. The forward speed of the tornado reached 60 mph (97 km/h)." 

The tree took down the power lines/cables,
and Mon Cheri's baby car!

Yep, there was sadness,
nothing like coming home after a long day of work to find out your car crushed!
(we used public transportation a lot, so the car keeps the house company!)

We are thankful it was the car and not the house,
some of our friends were not as lucky.

 Oh the cruel winds of fate!

The electrical company restored power to the house within 24 h,
and the cable company within 48 h,
so over all we are doing well.

And we have some tree people cleaned up the mess in the front yard,
we thought about doing it ourselves,
but it was a lot of tree, 
and after cleaning up the back yard of the many branches that felt down,
we felt it was time to let the pro do it,
the left over tree was also taken down!

Happy Daddy day!


  1. So sorry you had a tornado and a tree! We sure have had some weird/bad weather here lately. We had a tornado on the ground here about a week ago. I was at Target...they had us all go to their "Fire Hall." Never knew they had such a thing.
    Hope this week is tons better for you.
