Change of Plans

I was all set to write a couple blog posts Friday night, and then things got interesting.  A storm was coming up in a hurry, so we ran out to pick the peas real quick, since we wanted them for supper.  When the rain started beating down, the chickens just huddled up in a bunch against the fence.  I was going to go out and chase them into their house, but the lightning changed my mind.  If they want to get soaked, that’s their business.

After the rain stopped, I went out to see how they were doing, and noticed some leaves on the hood of my truck.  Turns out it was more than just a few leaves, but a large branch from high up in our neighbor’s tree:

Uh Oh

Uh Oh

And it did a little damage on the way down:



If it’s not obvious in the picture, it mashed the roof and broke out the back window, which is lying in the bed.  It left a dent in the left side of the bed somehow, right behind the door.  It also messed up one wiper pretty good, so I doubt I’ll be able to use them.  It’s still drivable, though, so I’ll find out how windy it is driving without a back window when I go to church in the morning.

Now I get to find out whether anyone’s insurance company will want to pay for any of this, and whether I can replace the window and fix the wiper for less than the cost of replacing the truck.  I kinda doubt it, but I’ll see what a glass place has to say.  Maybe I should apply for disaster relief.

Fortunately, that was the only damage we had.  It sounds like some people in Quincy were hit a lot worse.
