We had to run up to town this afternoon to return something to Walmart. When we left the house, it was raining and the winds were really picking up. There were branches down everywhere and we noticed a few trees down in our neighborhood. When we came home, we saw this (picture above) in our yard. Bummer. It was one of our favorite trees. Our next door neighbors have an aspen lying across their lawn. I guess the winds got pretty wild for the short time we were away. Rick's got the tree all cut up now and we're hoping we don't lose any more. The 30+mph winds are supposed to stay around until tomorrow night. This tree landed about 6 feet from our house. The scary thing is that the tree to the left of it is way, way taller.
I had a yucky night. Some of you know I get really bad back spasms from time to time. When I went to bed last night, I had a funny feeling in my chest. I thought maybe I had eaten too much at dinner or something. I woke up at 1:30am with the spasms and then realized that was the pain I was feeling earlier. I should have recognized it. So, I was miserable for nearly 2 hours until my medications kicked it. I got out our massager pad thing and that helped a lot. But of course, I'm a zombie today from the meds and still not feeling all that great. Between back spasms and downed pine trees, it's been a yucky day. I hope yours is going better!
