… many of them may be no more. We had a big storm at 3:00 a.m. and a 40-ft bassword came crashing down into the yard.

The good news: it missed the house by about 3 feet. If it had been hit just a tad bit more to the right, the tree would have crashed through the bedroom (and the occupants therein). As it is, it’s lying across my garden. It’s too dark to get a true assessment of the damage, so I’m off to work for now and will come back, mid-morning, computer in tow, to work at home and help the Spousal Unit deal with insurance people, tree people, and the neighbors (I think the tree was on their property, but I’m not sure which tree came down).

Yes, this will show up in a book someday. And I’ll answer your questions more thoroughly once I’ve had a chance to catch my breath. For now, it’s 4:15 a.m. and I’m off to work.
