Excitement in the Brown’s Backyard

So today we had wind here in Lyman.  LOTS of wind!  So much wind in fact that it uprooted a 60′ pine tree in our backyard!!  Here is the view from just outside our back door.  It landed about 20′ from the back of the house.

Look how close it came to our swing set!  One foot to the left and it would have been crushed!

Look at this!  It just came right up out and out of the ground!  It had maybe 6′ to fall between the swing set and the fence and it went right in between the two of them!  Amazing!  We are SOOOO lucky!

Here are my helpers coming our to survey the damage!  Logan the Power Ranger (Yesterday he was Spider Man!  Anyone have any costumes they want to donate to my dresser upper?!?) and Garett were amazed!  Reece was already over on the right trying to estimate how big the base was!

So, moral of the story?  We will have lots of wood for the new wood stove Rhett put in last weekend!  The wood has to dry for a year, but we’ll be set for a bit!  BTW, I LOVE my new stove!  Very toasty!  :o)

It doesn’t take much to excite us here at the Brown home!

Until Next Time, I’m Fondly Yours,
