Walking out my front door this morning, I was able to confirm what I'd suspected last night. It was a big tree.

I got pretty lucky, though. The tree barely reached my house.

This section of gutter is toast. I've got a guy coming out to see if there's any damage to my actual roof. He'll also give me an estimate on repairs. This is the same guy who replaced my entire roof a few years ago.

This hole in my yard is going to be a pain to fill, I just know it.

I got lucky.

Phew - glad the damage wasn't any worse.

The hail you had, was it clear? We had clear, pea sized hail in Sellersburg close to the time you did. Odd looking.

I didn't really notice how clear the hail was. Just cute little ice pellets.

Ouch. That sucks but like you said, it could have been worse. I bet your kitties were poopin in their britches when that hit.

My most timid cat, Nugget, hid in the basement until Thursday morning.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
