Caption: Woke up this morning to find that the Spruce tree in my backyard had fallen on the house. We are less than a mile from the Lake Michigan shoreline and had winds in excess of 50mph last night.

Nobody could come up to the U.P. to visit me for Christmas, so I had to come back to the L.P. or be all alone. In the national forest, with millions of trees, one dropping in the wind is normal. I didn't expect it here in the middle of suburbia!

Your area looks remarkably green for the first day of winter--in upper Michigan!

Yikes - looks like it stayed part way in the ground, which may have helped with the damage.  Good luck!

We don't know if there is other damage to the house. The tree people say they can't get on the roof until the winds subside - probably tomorrow. I decided to visit my other house for the holidays, and see what bad luck I brought with me!

Did you have any roof damage. We had this happen last year and just missed the house. We were told that because the spruce has so many branches probably would hurt the roof.

I live in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. This is a place of extreme contrasts. The weather here is really spectacular, as is the Hiawatha National Forest. Since the first time I visited this place, I always wanted to live here. Now I do.
