Writing lesson? Expect the unexpected.
Wherein I endeavour to share writerly advice lightened with humour, pictures and a dollop of 1930s-1940s history.

Sorry. No post today. We had a large windstorm here last night and our neighbour's giant fir tree split and hit our house. Luckily, the house stood. But I've got a day of phoning for electrical repairs (wires came detached from the house), gutter repairs and a side yard full of tree. To add to the fun there's another storm showing up tomorrow night.

Wise words, Elspeth...and watch out for those darn earthquakes as well...ReplyDelete
And count your blessings. Hope you have heat for the night! Glad you are safe.ReplyDelete
I'm thankful you and your family are all right. Take care.ReplyDelete
Oh what a mess! Why is it that it's always the *neighbor's* tree?! Hope you're able to get all the workmen out there to take care of it. And I'm glad you're all right!ReplyDelete
Mystery Writing is Murder
Alan; Don't mention the e word; there was a 6.2 one this morning off the Queen Charlotte Islands.ReplyDelete
Michele, Carol, Elizabeth; Thanks for the good thoughts. It means more than I can say.
Yikes, hope it all gets resolved soon. Dealing with unexpected HH stuff drives me crazy.ReplyDelete
Elspeth - How horrible for you!!!! I'm very glad to hear that you're all OK, and I wish you well getting everything fixed. Positive energy and wishes coming north, heading directly towards you!ReplyDelete
Glad you are well, wishing you speedy home repairs and a speedy return to a writing routine.ReplyDelete
Love it. Only a hardened blogger would put up a post about not putting up a post, lol. Glad the house survived!ReplyDelete

I am so glad the tree didn't destroy your house, and you're alright. We will miss you, take care of business and we'll see you when you come back. :-)ReplyDelete
Carolyn; The unexpected blows. Unexpected trees falling blows hard.ReplyDelete
Joanne; Thanks! I think right now my writing would be as wobbly as me.
Old Silly; I have a huge sense of obligation tinged with guilt. This is how I meet deadlines with room to spare!
Elizabeth; Thanks for your lovely comment. It's truly, truly appreciated. Really? I'd be missed?
Oh Elspeth! I'm just glad to hear that you're okay!ReplyDelete
I'm assuming you were in the house when the tree fell, Elspeth, so I imagine you're still feeling the stress physically as well. I'm so glad no one was hurt and the house is okay.ReplyDelete
I am so glad everyone is okay and that your house withstood the tree. Good luck getting everything taken care of. Just be well and breathe.ReplyDelete
Glad everyone is okay!ReplyDelete
Yikes! I'm glad you're all okay - those wind storms can be incredible. Good luck with the rest.ReplyDelete
Glad you're safe. Hope the house is too!
Wow. You never know. I had a huge limb come down early spring against my house. I had the tree taken down 2 weeks ago. Thanks for letting us know.ReplyDelete
Praying all goes well.
Great advice! Best of luck on your repairs!ReplyDelete
Oh wow...so sorry to hear about that. What a pain. But at least everyone is okay.ReplyDelete
