From September 22, 2006
It was a very blustery night and day. In the middle of the day, I was startled by a large thump upstairs. I froze, listening, but didn’t hear anything else and kept working. Not too long after that, the internet and our phones went dead. They came back on several hours later.
Steve was working a 24-hour shift and didn’t come back until the next morning. He walked in and said, “Hey, you never told me about the building!” I walked outside and saw that a huge tree had fallen down and knocked part of the roof off of the apartment building right across from us!!
(The oval marks our apartment. The circle represents the tree that fell.)
