A severe thunderstorm blew through Abilene a couple of days ago, with winds in excess of 90 miles an hour. We are very grateful that the only casualty was the mesquite tree that stands proudly in our front yard.
We were not home at the time, but this is where we usually park our car.
We are very sad to that our lovely tree is fractured and we have lost some of the lovely shade it provides, but we are truly truly thankful that it didn't fall on our house or anyONE for that matter.
Yesterday, the hubs ( with the little boy "helping" ), took down the limb and cleared up the front yard.
Onward and Upward!
