Into Each Life a Little Rain Must Fall
Or, at least, 10 days after moving into your new house, straight-line winds of 70 m.p.h. might just knock a couple of enormous tree limbs onto your house.
I can't get too worked up about it, though, due to the fact that, as the old saying above goes, this might be expected. Also, I can't count the number of times someone has told me that as soon as you move into a new house, something happens. Hopefully this one will prove to be not too too expensive. Luckily, no one was hurt, although it was sort of painful to me that, after I slept through the entire process of the tree crashing down on our house, Ben ran into the bedroom and said, 'SUSAN ARE YOU OKAY?!?" while I was in a very deep sleep.
But I'm glad he cares.
And I'm also glad that the deductible on our homeowners' insurance is an amount we can afford, if need be.
And I'm still very glad to be in this new place, trees and all.
Still waiting on the internet, though.
