    Part of the Tree in my back yard fell in front of my driveway. Luckily, my car was under the carport and is still ok. I can't get out and no one can get in as it is right in front of my driveway. It was a big branch that fell off. Nothing hit my house either - so have to look at the good side. I called the Emergency tree removal service here.

    :prayer: that I can get it removed soon. I don't feel safe right now.

    I am praying that they will remove the tree branch quickly for you, Lynn! I am so thankful that you weren't hurt by it and that your car and house are okay.

    You were indeed saved. That could have been really bad. I am so thankful it missed you, your babies, your car and your house. It is an annoyance until it is removed. Praying that happens right away.

    We had an unexpected snowfall and freezing rain last night and that's what caused the branch to break. ****I hate winter**** and this is far too early for snow. I was just out to look at it. It's quite a large branch. The Tree service has a lot of emergencies and will come around noon. I was indeed lucky!

    I checked our weather back home and saw that it was also pretty cold last night! Our oldest son, who is taking care of our business while we are gone (and will eventually be the main person there) texted me that Kubota's (our Sulcata tortoise) house (right next to our business building!) had caught on fire because the rain shorted the plug! Lexi, our border collie/rottweiler barked and alerted them to the fire and they were able to put it out before it burned the building!! Praise God for Lexi!!! Kubota is fine and our son took her home to Ellensburg until he can repair her winter house.
    I am very glad that they will come soon to get that branch out of your driveway, Lynn! Are you feeling any better?

    Yes, Susan I'm feeling much better. I'm also glad that Lexi saved the day by barking and alerting the people there about the fire.

    Goodness Lynn, glad that Branch did not cause more damage, hope they get it removed today. And glad you feeling better too. It is always a big worry here with being surrounded by big Fir Trees. If i had my way i would have them cleared... yes to early for :sball: for sure !
    Susan i am glad Lexi warned everyone about the Fire and Kubota is ok !

    Thanks Candy, yes it was so scary. I got up and looked out and my whole driveway was covered with this large branch from the tree. I was blessed by God for sure.

    If I had left the tree the way it was the damage would have been worse come winter. This is what the Emergency Tree Service told me.

    It sounds like it was a good thing it came down when it did.
