During Sunday evening's storm, there were loud claps of thunder, lightning, pouring rain - the works!
I was fixing dinner, and we heard a loud boom.
It almost just sounded like the loudest thunder - honestly, not unlike something we've heard before.
You know - the kind of thunder that seems to shake the house?
But I suspected it was something more this time.
We both ran outside in the rain, in different directions.
It was dark, but not completely at that point.
Yep, a tree fell onto the house.
This was the view from our bathroom window the next morning:
It could have been a LOT worse!
No windows broken, and the roof was not punctured nor damaged - only the gutters where the tree fell.
Like I said, we were VERY lucky.
