Last night around 11:00p.m., I heard a loud THUMP and my mom screaming in her bedroom. I got up, put my robe on and ran in as fast as I could. I got in there and found out that the mirror inside fell. Oh, it was just the mirror I thought but then I looked at the wall and saw that part of it had been broken and other parts caving in. Thinking something else was up, I went to the outside door and saw our porch almost entirely lifted up to its roof at one corner. As soon as I ran back inside and got a flashlight, I saw what was a +100' redwood tree which was at the edge of our porch laying down flat on the ground, lifting our porch up with its roots. Luckily no one (except for this squirrel who was cruched by the fall) got hurt, including our golden lab who (used to) sleeps on the porch at night. So, needless to say, half of our yard is covered in a +100' redwood tree and all of its branches, our porch is destroyed and could collapse at anytime, our outside freezer is torn up almost to the point of non-functionality and there are various scratches and holes that need to be fixed although we just did most of those a few months ago. Well that's my story, how about your experiences with natural disasters, even if they're on a small scale like this one?
