Trees aren't supposed to fall on cars. Right?

In the midst of an ice storm that came through our area in the last couple of days, one snarky little tree decided to forget the above adage and decided to go ahead and fall on my car (as seen below). The damage wasn't terrible, but to think that I nearly accepted an offer from the Arbor Day Foundation to plant 10 new trees this year...if this is the kind of behavior I can expect from trees, well, let's just say I won't be planting any new enemies soon.

Sorry for the lack of posting (I wish I could say it is because I am halfway through Book Six of Harry Potter), I have started a new semester of school, and Hebrew, Hermeneutics, and What is Salvation? have been kicking my butt, along with this retreat that I have been planning for the youth that happens this weekend. I'm going to write more about the retreat, but I have to say, I haven't looked forward to a youth retreat this much in a long time. I think that it is going to be a really great weekend for the students I work with. If you add to the retreat preparations a tree falling onto my car, two days before this retreat, in the midst of the busyness of starting school...I'm just glad to have some sanity at the moment. I hope folks are well...

That is absolutely crazy Josh!! Praise the Lord that it didn't do any massive damage to your car, but still - that is not cool at all!

Good luck with your retreat this weekend! Can't wait to hear how everything goes!

Dude...that sucks. After you left this morning I was like...dang I skipped over the comment he made about a tree falling on his car. Sorry man. I'm just in a little "Tom buble" at the moment.
