  •  I had abranch crash into my home when I lived in (8+ / 0-)

    Newport, NH during that bad ice storm! What a mess! It was right before xmas and we had loss power also- as I walked in my darl living room I tripped over it and felt all this ice! I thought my xmas tree had fallen over until I got a flash light- Had to stuff the ceiling hole with trash bags and get a neighbor to call 911- the fire department put a big blue tarp on the roof and hooked me up with a guy who repaired it in a couple of days. Now I understand why so many home owners cut all there trees surrounding their homes as that use to bother me- not any more!

      It did a ton of damage and some folks were without power for weeks.

      Glad you weren't hurt when that branch came down.

      We're going to be joining those home owners who cut trees close to the house.

      We hate doing it, but it's just not worth risking one of those huge pines taking out the house.
