THE JULY 8, 03 4:00 AM STORM DAMAGE
AT ABOUT 4:15 A.M. ON THE ABOVE DATE, A REALLY BIG "OLD FASHIONED THUNDERSTORM" HIT US! I DIDN'T SUFFER ANY DAMAGE EITHER TO MY HUMBLE LITTLE MODULAR HOUSE, OR MY HORSE BARN. BUT TIM "MUST BE LIVING RIGHT" BECAUSE OUR BELOVED CATULPA TREE BLEW OVER AND JUST BRUSHED THE SIDE OF OUR OLD FARM HOUSE WHERE TIM NOW LIVES.  AS HE LATER STATED AS WE WERE SURVEYING THE DAMAGE, "ANOTHER COAT OF PAINT AND IT WOULD HAVE TAKEN OUT THE FRONT OF THE HOUSE"!  AND AS I STATED, "YOU MUST BE LIVING RIGHT"!
MATT AND I CHECK OUT THE HUGE "ROOT BALL"!
THIS IS HOW CLOSE IT CAME TO THE HOUSE! I TOLD TIM THAT IT WAS A GOOD THING THE WIND WAS A WEST WIND RATHER THAN THE USUAL SOUTHWEST WIND IN A STORM, OR THE WHOLE FRONT OF THE HOUSE WOULD HAVE BEEN KINDLING WOOD!
