So we had an exciting wind storm last night….and it turns out that God did a lot of pruning all over town. Behold some of what came down on our kids’ houses. The good news is that no one was hurt. In fact, both the Janks and the Merkles thought the loud crash was thunder! The Janks’ home suffered front porch damage, while the Merkles’ house has a more serious problem with roof damage. Both are rentals, which is nice for them, but hard for their landlords, who are both kind Christian gentlemen. Nate’s house was unscathed, though his car windshield was cracked from the pile of branches that landed on it! We are rejoicing at God’s kindness to us.
First we have a picture of the Merkles’ house:
Though Ben and Bekah have had to move a bunch of their storage out of the room where the roof was damaged, they have been very grateful that the tree did not hit one of the nearby bedrooms!
Then we have a picture of the Wilsons’ car:
A new windshield will be needed. And a car wash would be nice too.
And last, but not least, we have the amazing tree at the Janks’ house! Rachel has been inundated all day with curious passers-by, tv and news reporters, friendly neighbors, and many of the members of the Christian community who have just stopped in to see if they are okay, or if they need anything. She has been very blessed by all the concern!
