Storm damage today

Just had a nasty storm blow through earlier this evening. Tore my son's trampoline from the house and smashed it into the Jeep. A trip to the panel beater in the new year. is now on the agenda.

Oh dear Ozm. No good.

It reminds of a few years ago when we had the WH Limited. Our son's trampoline was anchored just beyond the parking spot. It was tethered not only to the ground but also to one of the boundary fences for extra security.

Cue huge storm rocking through. The conversation with my husband went something like this:

Me: Did you happen to borrow the tie ropes from the tramp for something else.
Him: Yeah I borrowed them - needed them in the barn.
Me: Did you put them back on the tramp?
Him: No, why?
Me: Because the trampoline is now sitting on top of the Jeep!

Him: (expletive, expletive) and boy did he move fast but too little too late.

Fascia, bonnet and side panel damage.

That learned him.

The tramp was literally torn from its tethers. Its beyond repair now so it will be off to the tip this weekend. Contacted my insurance company this morning to notify them of the damage. Now off to the Panel Beater on Thursday for a quote, and yes a new mudguard/fender will certainly be the order of the day. I don't expect to see repairs work started until well into the new year as most businesses here are closing for Xmas/New Year break on the 16th.
