Today we had a storm come through. Dh and I were sitting in the living room watching tv when we heard a loud noise. We had just got done pressure washing and I left the umbrella on the patio furniture open, so he thought something happened to that so he got up to look and found a big tree brance fell on our garage roof!!! So when the rain slowed down dh went out to survey the damage with that branch, and low and behold ANOTHER HUGE tree branch fell on our fence and his truck!!!!! THAT was the noise we heard, not it falling on the roof! Thank GOD it only put 2 dents on the bed of his truck!!! It did however take down part of the fence and a chunk was taken out of the roof. The thing is is, we had a roofer out here just this morning and I signed a contract for a replacement roof 'cuz of hail damage. I called state farm and they said I'd have to make another claim. UGH! Our deductible is $1000!!!!! So we have people coming out in the morning to get them up and possibly take down 2 trees that branches keep falling from. Then we have to get the roofers BACK out to look at the roof and assess the damage. It never fails.

But the good new is, is we pressure washed the deck today! Oh, and I got my 1st baby shower gift in the mail. It's a pack of onsies, pants, bibs, and socks and they all match!

Oh, here's a picture so you can see a little what we have to deal with. It's not even showing the damage done on the roof. This is after dh climbed in the passenger side and drove his truck from under that branch. He always parks in front of the right garage door.

Oh goodness! I'm sorry you're having to deal with all that!
It seems like bad stuff always happens at the worst possible times.

I'm glad you're both safe and there's no major damage. I am sorry, though, about the damage that was caused by the branches that fell.

Wow! That sucks and I'm sorry you're having to deal with this. The insurance is also a PITA to deal with. Luckily neither you or DH were hurt.

Oh man, that's wild! I'm glad that you guys weren't hurt and it was only the bed of his truck that got hit... I hope the roof estimate isn't too crazy this time...

Thanks guys....yes, we are lucky we are both safe. We were watching the news yesterday and it seems like a lot of people had trees and tree branches down. We just had the tree people come out and between his quote and my mom freaking out I told them they were gonna put me in labor! $1000 JUST to get up the fallen tree branches!! Mom wanted both trees down and fallen branches so I asked him how much that would be. $4000!!!! After about 10 minutes of her freaking out she said go ahead and take the trees down. OMG. Ridiculous! THEN we're having to pay $1000 to the insurance for the hail damage on the roof, and now we're gonna have to pay ANOTHER $1000 for the damage done to the roof probably. That's $6000!!!!! Yeah, needless to say, I've already started to have bh's this morning!

OMG, I can't even imagine. I stress about money (seemingly) every minute of every day, so I can't even imagine how you are feeling right now.

I hope it all works out somehow...
