You've read my post then, my dear wife had nightmares for weeks afterwards.

tommy boy, problem is... i have too... the driveway is right beside some huge ass trees that will probably be uprooted if we have a really bad storm.

pics will be up soon, guys. at my local picture development/ pharmacy (aka Rite Aid) 1 hour photo means a few hour photo... I can understand, though, they probably had other orders to take care of...

The pictures are here finally. The ones before we removed the tree off of the truck didn't turn out well, to dark to really see any damage to it. So, here are some of the better ones showing the damage:
