The result of a little ice storm the other day.
The not-so-pretty? The $500 we had to fork over to the glass place to repair the rear quarter panel window on the truck. Seems the decrepit old tree in the front yard couldn't handle the extra weight of the pretty ice and we lost a few branches. One rather large branch that came down on the car mere minutes after Carlos got home and parked it. Perfect. Full disclosure time...that $500 also included our *front* windshield that cracked almost 2 years ago :p Guess it was time to do something about that, huh?
Every time we have an ice storm, I'm reminded by my mom or dad of the day I was born. The big ice storm of March, 1976...cited by many as "one of the worst natural disasters in Michigan's history." What an excellent sign of things to come for their first-born :p I think my ill-fated beginnings were just a case of bad timing though as overall, I've had a pretty good life. Just a little trip down memory lane today...happy Wednesday!
