A falling tree branch nearly destroyed my window a/c

Our section has been getting hit with intense Winter time storms right now.

I’m used to the rain storms down south when I lived near the ocean, however the ice and snow is new to me.

I didn’t realize that these Winter time storms can pack a serious punch between high winds and heavy precipitation. You have to be careful and avoid the stressed highways if you know a snow and ice storm is headed your way. Some people aren’t experienced driving on these roads if they don’t live in this kind of temperature year after year. I get more worried about other drivers in these stormy conditions than I do with my own. Still, it’s smart to avoid the roads if you are worried about the weather while I was in the Winter time season. Unluckyly, you might not necessarily be safe in your house either. When I heard a huge snapping noise while I was in a Winter time storm yeahterday, I didn’t expect to hear a wood and metal smashing noise just fourths later. Upon running outside, I could see that a huge branch snapped off our oak trees and had destroyed my window a/c while nearly puncturing my home as well. The a/c was kneeling disfigured in a pile of metal on the ground under the broken branch. As exasperated as I was about my window a/c getting destroyed, I was absolutely relieved that the branch failed to impact the side of the house. I can get a new window a/c for around $200, however the building repairs would have been multiple thoUSAnds dollars at least.
