It Could Have Been Worse...But Still...

Look what we woke up to this morning.
The window you see in this photo is our bedroom.
The girls' room is right next to ours.

Someone apparently took the corner by our house too fast last night.
Way too fast.

And didn't have the guts to let us know.
This shows how far some of the wood flew.

Can you believe none of us heard this?
I haven't been sleeping well lately, waking up at 3am or so, for no reason.
But not last night.
I woke up at my normal time this morning thankful I got a good night's sleep.

Not that we can really do anything about this, but I did call the police to get it recorded.
Our street is not a pass through. Usually those who drive around here, live around here.
There's got to be some front end damage on a car around here.

I'm just glad the fence was there to stop the car.
It could have been MUCH worse.

Happy Friday.
What a way to start the weekend, huh?

Oh, no! I'm glad everyone is safe, though! Just last week here in my town there was a car that drove through a bedroom while the teenage girl was studying. Nobody was seriously injured but it's scary!

Wow, that's just too close for comfort! I'm so glad that you and your family are alright. Thank the Lord is was just some wood. Your guardian angels were really busy last night! I just found your blog because you left it on Crochet Soiree. If you get a chance check out mine. Your blog is GREAT! LOVE IT!

If the police catch up with that person, they or their insurance company are responsible for repairs to your fence and any other damage that may have been caused.

Oh, no! Glad no one was hurt. It is a pain when you have to fixed things like this, especially when you didn't do it. Keep warm and safe!

Sparkle said...

Sorry about your fence. But I'm glad you're all safe! Have a good weekend dearie.

I wonder what happen to the driver? Yeah, like you said. There has to be damage on their car. Glad you are all ok and no damage to your house!
Have a nice weekend

Oh Jeanne, that's scary. I'm glad that you all are safe. People really need to take it slower when the streets are snowy and icy.

Sarah said...

I am glad it happened while you guys were all safe and sound in bed...not while the kiddos were outside playing!!!
Take care Jeanne...sorry about your fence.

Sharli said...

Oh Jeanne! Yes, quite thankful that it wasn't worse!!! Wow. It leaves you feeling violated that they didn't report it to you. Cowardly.
I guess if you were told, and an honest apology given, it would be very hard to remain upset (no-one was hurt).


Barb said...

Well, my goodness! I'm glad to know that you and your family are fine.

Heather said...

Man, this stinks. So sorry, Jeanne. Bah humbug to the perpetrator.

I hope the maniac driver really learned his/her lesson and will take it easy from now on! I'm glad everyone's ok and hopefully it'll be easy for you to get repairs done. Thanks so much, Jeanne, for your sweet words on my blog today :) !

Jen said...

oh how scary! glad you guys were all okay....about a year ago a friend of ours had a car go thru their living room wall....hope your weekend is better!

Looks like someone had a little too much Christmas cheer - from a bottle. I'm glad the vehicle stopped with the fence, and that you are all OK. Creepy!

Wow, what a mess! I'm glad nobody was hurt (that you know of) and that you didn't wake up to find someone IN the car that hit your fence.
