The Queen of Sheeeba [userpic]
And I was so happy to see the garbage cans by the side where they belong.

You may or may not have heard about the crazy spring storm we got here in NY. Lotsa rain, high winds, thunder and lightning. Did I mention high winds? Gusts topping 50 mph.

So Dany's backing up into the driveway, head turned around and says, "Ah, shit!"

This is our shed:

Windblown 1

Aw, crap! I'm sorry.

Oh, that sucks.

My dad had the same shed for a while while we were growing up. (While we sibs we growing up in Dad's house. With Mom. Dad (and Mom too) was already grown up at that time. But you knew that.) Then there was the windstorm. I remember Dad chasing the shed down the street as it pinwheeled (or "cartwheeled", either way) away. That was funny.

Later I found out you could get a "floor" for those sheds. And "anchor" them to the ground. The shed wreckage lived under the deck for years. I'm not going to talk about the death of the deck right now.

Yikes. Sorry. I saw all sorts of tree limbs down all over the place today; one of them was huge, taking up a whole lane of highway. Fortunately, a cop had pulled up to block it and had his gumballs flashing.

And as I came around the corner on my way home, I looked up at the roof, and sure enough -- covered with dead branches from the oak tree.
