Hurricane Irene paid us a visit Saturday. DH and I are fine but a couple of pine trees from the back of our lot fell and clipped our house. One of the branches went into an upstairs bedroom and damaged the roof. We had rain pouring in most of the afternoon!
This tree fell first and hit the other one breaking it off. They both clipped the house.
This is the ceiling of the room upstairs. The hole in the wall is where the branch came through!
The trees blew out the window in the room we were sitting in. My husband was sitting right by the window. We have thousands of pieces of glass in the carpet and on the furniture in that room. We were lucky. All over town there are trees down and houses damaged. Ours is not nearly as bad as many others. Around the corner from us a huge tree fell on the house and half the house is crushed.
This is a car that was parked in our neighbors driveway. They moved their other cars to the street!!
The strength of Mother Nature is amazing! I hope everyone else all along the east coast survived.
