The home of some friends has suffered serious damage in Tuesday night's storm. A tree fell on their kids' room and came through the roof. A branch almost killed the father and the mother is bruised and scratched up from where the ceiling fell on her. She was holding the baby and thank god the baby is ok. The children are both fine.

The tree that fell on the home has been removed but the roof is open to the sky in places. The ceiling is damaged or gone. It is shear luck that no one was killed. The home will have to be taken down to the studs in places - there is serious structural damage; luckily we are handy.

This family had just paid off the home and had it transferred to their name (it was an owner-finance situation). SO... they have no insurance. None. They survive on a single income as it is...

I don't want to mention any names. I am going to take donations at my paypal account, aichambaye at yahoo dot come. If you mark it "disaster donation" I'll get it to them as soon as possible. If you send it as a donation, paypal doesn't take as much fees out. If you want to mail me a check, you can do that, or drop one off at the house, please do. I'm in the PopChiv as the reservationist for Lusty Month of May. Every dollar will count and will really help.
