Was extremely windy outside today. Was planning to visit dohny and keith in sac at 3:30. Doorbell rang at 2:50, and I found a salesman there who was selling cleaning solution. He said, “I have good and bad news for you.” The good news was a very brief demo of his product. The bad news was, “when I was coming here, I saw the wind blow down a tree onto your car”.

I looked out my front door and toward the driveway, and saw that my car was indeed pinned beneath a tree.

We tried budging it, but it wouldn’t move. I ended up talking with the guy for a while, sharing my faith with him and giving him a couple books (the Bible and mere christianity). His fellow salespeople arrived in a van shortly after and helped lift the tree enough for me to back my car out of the driveway.

Luckily, nothing was shattered or too badly damaged. I have a couple new dents in my car’s roof, but it appears to be fine.

My dad spent quite some time hacking up the tree and moving it into piles on the street.
