The other night our city was hit with a violent windstorm. It only lasted a couple of minutes. I was sitting in my office when, without warning, a violent wind swept across the yard, bending trees and sending objects flying across the yard. After it hit I went outside to assess the damage. There I saw it. Two large branches from a one hundred year old maple tree we lying across my car. It was the kind of sight that causes your heart to drop. It created all sorts of small dents and scratches on the hood and roof.
I’ve come to learn that my auto insurance doesn’t cover this sort of damage. All I can do is growl in disapproval and frustration.
