Is this the luckiest Airstream

During a huge electrical/ rain storm a few minutes ago a tree came down on my '61. Check out the damage, she must be tough or lucky...

it appears to be a blessed 'stream...

my air-cat has been spared occasionally,

or has she really used UP a life or 2, too?

we are getting some bad weather here right now in VA and my neighbor has a large old oak that has one huge branch that hangs over my driveway where my AS is parked.
I am thinking of hiring a tree cutter to do some selective trimming.

If it's over your driveway, it's your limb. You can always ask the neighbor if he would like to remove it, or help with the cost of removal...
Parking under trees can be a double-edged sword.

The Airstream gods were smiling on you. Put an extra $5 in the plate at church tomorrow.

Holy cow! That was amazing. You (and your AS) are VERY, VERY lucky!

Actually, I think the shiny force field around the exterior is what diverted the limb...

Truckasaurus, I just saw this post. I'd been wondering how you and your '61 were doing, I guess now I know. I'm really glad the damage was so minimal, you are truly blessed!

Please be sure to keep us (okay... ME) updated on your restoration progress. As you know I love this year and model, and I'm eager to see what you do with yours.

Take Care.

-Marcus
