TIMBER - Thankfulness Day 18

We had the worst storms whip through here last night.  Severe Thunderstorm Warnings, Tornado Warnings, High Wind Warnings - the weather was just brutal.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres and my son and I were sitting down to dinner listening to the winds howling when we heard, "CRACK!" We jumped up from the table and ran to the window to see that we lost one of our huge pine trees out front.  It literally just snapped from the high winds. I am so sad that we lost one of our beautiful trees but at the same time so thankful that it fell the way it did. If you were going to expertly cut down a tree, you couldn't do a better job than the one Mother Nature did last night.  The tree did NOT fall on our house.  The tree did NOT fall on the power lines.  The tree did not even fall in the street. It fell without damaging any other trees or our flagpole or really anything except the poor tree.
I am thankful for the "TIMBER!" that left our house intact.
It almost looks like we planted hedges!

How it missed the other tree AND didn't even fall on the road - Miracle!

Even the power lines were safe.  I will miss that big majestic tree. It was a thoughtful tree - right to the end.
The puppies of course didn't care one thing about the storm!
Storm?  What Storm?

It looks like perfect leaf chasing weather to me!

Mr. Yesteryear Acres - you should play with us all day long!

We will just keep you right here next to us

What? You have to go remove the tree?

Noooooo - Don't leave!

Come Back Mr. Yesteryear Acres!

He works so hard!

Not us! Heh Heh Heh.  We just play all day long!

And nap.  Don't forget about naptime!

It's hard work being this cute!

Happy Monday!
