I NEVER WOULD!
Besides, she hasn't caused any problems, yet. If you look closely at the pics a mockingbird has homesteaded in our bougainvillea tree. I noticed the nest a few days ago and can rarely catch her in the nest. Every time I try to get a pic of her in her nest, she flies out to the post bracing our maple tree or to Jack's swing set and just watches until I leave. Jack and I peeked in the nest today and there was one little egg. It will be neat to see what Jack thinks of the baby bird or birds (if she lays some more eggs) when they hatch.
Saturday, No egg
Sunday, one egg

Like I said before, the area we use to live in was one of the hardest hit. Almost every house has damage either to the roof or windows, or both. I am not one to wish bad things on people and do feel very bad for all the people impacted by this, but I must say I think Karma is getting some revenge on our former land-lady. Refusing to give back our $700 deposit when the house was cleaner than when we moved in is turning out to be a big mistake for her. We were probably the best renters she ever had and she did us wrong. In return she got the ice storm of 2007, which took out some of her trees, and then this hail storm, which will probably cost her a new roof. Oh well, not my problem. As for the others, my prayers go out to you.
Some areas of OKC reported softball size hail
This pic was taken in the shopping center, next to the mall, in our old neighborhood
Over 80 cars were damaged in the that parking lot.
Preston was working in the city the day after and said almost every car had hail damage and that if my car looked like most of the ones he had seen I would be at home, in bed, crying.
He is probably right!
Hail accumulation off someone's roof.
That's not SNOW!!!!
After it was all over, a fog settled into OKC. Weird, but pretty.
The view from our house was much different than that of OKC.
