Of Showers and Trees. . .

So, this last weekend, we were supposed to fly to Utah for a baby shower being held in my honor.  Unfortunately, though, the flight ended up being cancelled, so we didn't make it which was a bummer for us.  But, I think all the family in Utah still had a good time getting together, so that was good!

After the flight got cancelled, we went out to breakfast and then, when we arrived back at my parent's house, we were greeted with this:

One of the big old oak trees in their front yard had fallen over, right onto their house!  I don't know if it had rotted off below the ground or if the ground was just so wet from all the rain showers they'd been getting lately that the tree just kinda tipped over.  Anyway, there wasn't much damage to the house, thankfully, but Clint and Dad got to spend the rest of the morning and part of the afternoon trying to cut up the tree.

Dad and Clint were able to get most of it chopped up and a bunch of weight off the house, but they couldn't figure out how to get the main trunk off without smashing up the house.  Then Dad got a pretty good gash on his head and they decided they better stop and call professionals.  Yikes!

So, while it wasn't the type of weekend we had hoped for, it was certainly eventful!
