On December 11th a wind storm with 40-80 MPH gusts blew down a 150+' fir tree (48" in diameter at the base) from the neighbors yard on top of our cabin. In addition to structural damage it broke a water pipe which with the rain made more of a mess.
We were having some work done. No one was home but one of the construction workers came by later in the day and found it. The got the water shut off, but the brand new carpet in the living room was soaked. They also got tarps over the hole in the roof to keep any more water from coming in.
