Never heard the tree coming down but it felt like the house moved from the gust of wind.

Blown Away

I was on the computer at about 3pm and felt what I thought was the house move from a wind gust. I knew it was pretty windy outside but this one gust was big. It got me out of my chair to check it out. I first looked out the front window to investigate but didn't see anything but as soon as I peered through the back window there it was, about a 30-35 foot tree laying in my above ground pool. It had crushed the side of the pool and emptied about half the water out instantly (about 4-5,000 gals.) flooding my back yard. We have insurance and hopefully will have it all back together for summer fun. I'm sure that there is alot of stories like this out of this wind storm.
