The rains are continuing... Last night a tree came down on Leslie's car. Actually, it tried to land politely between her car and that of our neighbor's, and managed to do some severe damage to each of them.
That was about 1:50 AM when we heard the crash. We didn't realize the extent of the damage until this morning when I went out, thinking I'd just drag off the bit of tree that was on her car and let her go to work. No such luck, we'd have to wait for the landlord to come out with the chainsaw before anything could happen.
So, I drove Leslie to work, then went to my office, explained what was going on, and returned home to start calling the insurance company, etc. What a mess. The power and the phones (land and cellular) kept going off and on all day, while waiting for the adjuster to call me back and tell me what to do with the car. (Still waiting for that call, by the way).
The car seems drivable, but the driver's door will not open. The entire left side of the car is rippled and poked with holes. Somehow the windows remained intact.
