The Wind Storm

Kansas City was hit with a windstorm this morning, winds were at 70mph in some places. Daniel, Caden and I were laying in bed listening to the winds and commenting on how fierce they sounded. All of sudden we heard a loud crack. Daniel and I jumped out of bed and ran to our bedroom window. But we didn't see anything. So we didn't really think anything of it. Daniel started getting ready for work and I went into Caden's room to change his diaper. Then the doorbell rang. All I thought was, Oh crap!... I went downstairs and answered the door and our neighbors from across the street were standing there. And behind them was this...








The tree barely missed my car. Thank goodness. And had it fallen any other way our house, our neighbors house, or other cars would have been seriously damaged. Praise the Lord nothing was damaged and no one was hurt. That was our exciting start to the morning. :-)

WHAT!?!? That's crazy! I got the chills just looking at the photos - I bet your stomach dropped when you went outside! That was a close one....

That is crazy!!!! I can not believe how close to your car that was. Yet another good reason to leave Kansas City for Northwest Arkansas!!!

I wish a big tree would fall on Matt's truck. (Guess you'd just have to see it to fully understand.) I'm glad you guys are ok... and the car, too.
