Hurricane Wilma: The tree that could have killed me
I had been standing in this room moments before the tree fell on the house, watching the storm. When I saw how bad it was, I knew I had to get into a safer place. Had I been standing here when the tree fell, I'd have been conked on the head, maybe killed. One of my co-workers was killed in a hurricane last year.
I swear I must have a hard working guardian angel. One who looks after stupid blondes who think just because they have been through 10,000 hurricanes, this one won't hurt them. Sheesh.
We also had a 50 year old tree fall in the front yard. It blocked the street. Thank God it didn't fall on the house or I'd be homeless, too.
