A Big Wind

Spring can be beautiful.  Right now I have purple scented lilacs, lily of the valley, oriental poppies and alliums blooming in my yard.

But spring can be unsettled too.  Last night a strong storm blew up suddenly, with high winds and driving rain.  I heard a crash, and discovered a large tree branch had fallen. part on the car, and part between the deck and the garage. Another reason it's a bad idea to build a deck around a tree, perhaps.

This morning we discovered that the damage was not as bad as we feared.  There is a dent over the door on the passenger side of the car, and the deck railing is scuffed, but that's  it.  We were lucky.
