Friday Favorite: My Favorite Hurricane Memory

I was 4 when Hurricane Gloria hit Long Island.  I don't remember the actual storm, but the day following it is one of my favorite childhood memories.  An enormous tree had fallen in our backyard, and my dad and I had a great time climbing in it before he cut it up.  

I remember being very sad when he told me THAT tree had been the one he was planning to build a treehouse in, and that we wouldn't be able to have a treehouse anymore.  Much later, I realized that there was probably never going to be a treehouse.  Well played Dad.

Awesome couch, right?
Now I'm just praying that none of our trees fall.  We like our shade :)

Do you have any happy hurricane memories?
