Near miss with a tree


Recommended Posts

When we bought our Oliver, my wife and I had many discussions about how and where to store it at home.  We finally decided to have a carport installed in front of my shop.  This morning I was walking down to my shop and did a double take when I saw that an oak tree had fallen onto the carport.  When I got down there, I saw that although about 10 feet of the carport was crushed it did not crush down to the Oliver.  The carport did its job and as soon as I get it repaired, the Oliver will be going back under it.

Thank goodness your Ollie was under that shelter.  It won't be inexpensive repairing the shelter but I'd bet that it will be a bunch LESS expensive repairing it versus repairing the Ollie.

Thanks for the pics!

Glad that your Oliver did not suffer any damage. Hoping that all goes well and your steel building is repaired promptly.

We have a building very similar to yours (sans the fallen tree). I’m very happy your trailer came through unscathed.

Ouch! Glad no one got injured. Mother Nature sure can cost us some money. I think about trees falling in the state camp grounds, We always look around before unhooking but sometimes there is no evidence of a tree problem. Glad the Oliver made it through it.
