Well I told mom to stay home since she is recovering from my sister flipping her Fit with both of them in it Monday. Mom is bruised and has a swollen hand. My sister came away with a knock on the head and a glass cut on her hand. Overall a super end to a wreck. With Mom at home, Peggy decided to help with the chores. She was out picking while I worked on water and hay. Then we heard the CRACK.
It sounded close and it sounded from the direction of the trailer and chicken coop. We both circled the house to see. Sadly I saw what I did not want to see.
The dang tree crunched my trailer!!!! I just about cried. Except for my education, my trailer is my biggest purchase. This hurts big time. We had the truck hitched since I had a lesson scheduled at Sprieser on Sunday. Canceled now :(

The tree drove my jack foot through the plastic rest and into the ground. The jack is tipped slightly back. The hitch and trailer tongue nearly touch the ground. We worry about the truck suspension. You can see where the hitch initially hit the ground and came up a little.

With all the wind and power outages I could not call home or Dad or anyone. Luckily I could use Peggy's land line to call my insurance and start that process. The adjuster will be out Monday too. I was a bit worried when he asked if it was a mobile home. Ugh, I hate claims and repairs. As a friend said "Your not fixing that with duct tape and baling twine."
