Happy New Year?

*

That's ½ of my maple tree resting comfortably on my neighbor's shed, thanks to today's high winds. It's also resting comfortably on the utility pole in the corner of my yard, and I've therefore lost my landline telephone service. Still have cable and electricity, (obviously, or you wouldn't be reading this), but I wonder for how long. Phone & power companies have been notified.

My neighbor is apparently away for the holidays. What a lovely gift she'll be coming home to. (Sorry, neighbor!) Now I wonder just how much this is going to cost me....

I heard and watched the whole thing happen -- quite dramatic. I'm just thankful it's not on either of our houses or cars. But the day isn't over, and the high wind advisory has been extended until 10 p.m. Exciting times!

And a Happy New Year to you, too!

Hmmm... if this is a second comment from me, please delete. We'll blame this on the wind too, and cut poor Blogger some slack.

Hope that's the worst of it for you. May tomorrow bring a truly happy NEW year!

oooo. Bad. I am so sorry about the wind. Power went out at the library but after we closed. My cousin's house was oop too so we had lunch at the local pizza place. I'm home now with power but that doesn't mean anything. Getting cold again too.

Still and all - Happy New Year and let us get together in 2009 at least 9 times, hmm? :D specially since the verification word is "uniters"

Uh!Oh! I am no lawyer-ha but you know that- anyway when that big hurricane went through here a tree from our yard partially fell on our neighbors house and we were told that in a natural disaster of that nature we were not responsible and his homeowners insurance was responsible. We did cut up the tree and take care of removal although after that was when we found out we didn't even have to do that- just the part that was on our property. He got greedy and wanted a settlement so we had to check it out. Hopefully in your case it will be the same way- Although it is not your fault I know how it is to feel badly about it- but you didn't DO it- unlike the time my dh cut down a tree....whole nuther story there ;)

Happy "Knit" Year!

Yes, so glad it wasn't the cars or homes. With all the rain, there are a lot of trees down here now.
