Natures Fury

You never know what to expect from Mother Nature when Living in the Ten Acre Woods. Late last night we heard a big crash and discovered a tree branch had landed on the house. Luckily it didn’t do any major damage. This morning I went out and discovered some minor damage to the roof, a few broken stair treads and side rail. Also, it landed on the Direct TV Dish and we lost signal. It’s a very, very sad day when a man loses Satellite signal and the family is none too happy, either. I called Direct TV and they indicated that it will take until June 2nd to repair, sad, very, very sad.



Currently, I have chain sawed and removed the limb. I found that the Satellite is in better shape than expected, but it is misaligned. I worked to realign the Satellite and was successful. Now, everyone in the Ten Acre Woods is happy except for the squirrel that lost his nest. Remember: What's in your Woods, River, Lake or Bay. I know what's in mine, today! Get Up & Get Out!

Glad to hear you didn't have any major damage. I'm sure if the squirrels lost their home in the tree, they'll be looking at your house/attic.

We have 3 larger trees in the woods that have fallen this year. This has been a very stormy year, but no critters in the house, yet.
