My much-anticipated four day weekend started with a BIG bang! Near midnight on Thursday, we had huge scary gusts of wind and non-stop hail and lightning. I was afraid we would lose the big tree in the backyard or that some of our windows would shatter. Well the damage was legit...lost the tree in front yard and our wooden fence in the back. I am OK parting with them, but don't want to pay any money right now. We had the tree hauled away yesterday and Rob will get fencing bids this week. Fun fun! 40th street lost a row of power lines and has been closed since the storm...seems like Phoenix and Tempe got the brunt of it.
