|Victoria liked them just fine, especially the icing|
|Just a few days before, you can see them outside|
And now they're gone. Well, technically they are still in the yard. Cause they're huge. But they're dead.
|I'm anxious to see how old they were|
They were getting ready to leave when we got several texts from friends in Austin about a tornado near Cameron. What? Tim and my dad went outside to investigate (because that's what you do when a tornado might be coming - run outside!) and us girls were in the classroom. I looked down the county road and watched a wall of wind and rain come slamming toward us.
It hit the house and the trees and I watched the west tree bow under the force, then ease back up ... and up ... and over. In horror I came closer to the window only to see it had taken out the other tree as well.
|They don't look big but this is a panoramic picture just to fit them in ...|
Which brings us back to Steve. I don't think he lives in either tree, but I didn't see him for several days and feared for the worst. But I finally saw him, happily hunting from our prostrate post oaks.
