18. Good luck and stay safe!

I hope the storm misses you, but it can't miss everybody. It's going to land somewhere.

Hearing those trees crack and fall in your yard is a very scary sound. I remember my early days growing up in Saint Louis, where we had tornado warnings and big electrical storms every afternoon in the summertime. As I recall we lost a huge oak tree which fell, not on our house but on our neighbor's roof.

One thing I learned is that when you have to replant trees, look for hickory trees. They grow tall and provide nice shade, and the hickory root goes straight down deep into the soil. Hickory trees don't tip over as quickly as trees that have shallower roots like maples and oaks.
