Why living on a corner lot is a bad idea
So I still managed to get 3000 words written today despite this:
It turned out that our neighbor decided to back into the fence. Judging by the damage I actually think the driver was settling some cosmic score between them and the fence. Three full sections of fence destroyed and two posts snapped. I had heard the noise when impact happened but just assumed it was the train. It was only when I left to pick my kid up from school that I noticed the giant hole in our fence.
At least nobody was hurt and I had just moved most of the kids toys to the other end of the yard a couple days ago.
I hope you know which Neighbor did it! I’m glad you were focused and got some work done.
Sad that the neighbour did not own up. #fail
The neighbor eventually came forward, so we’ve got everything straightened out (I think). I did most of the clean up tonight, will finish tomorrow.
The neighbor eventually came forward!
Sorry about the fence but as you said, at least no one was hurt.
Sorry about you fence, for such a brief article your being extremely generous giving away 500 eaves.

Could be worse … he could have kept going and back into the house as well!
Amazing – that your neighbor admitted the accident & that you are giving us eaves for just taking a look. Thanks so much.
That’s quite a demolition talent your neighbour has.
Ain’t no stopping you now . . . good luck with your novel and the last 25,000 words.
That’s horrible… :(
How about planting an English hedge, flexible and they don’t fall over easily : )

I’m relieved to hear no one was hurt. Well, maybe their pride… not physically at least.
How inconsiderate! And he/she didn’t even contact you about the damages? What a jerk.
I hope they fix it! :)
Cosmic score settled, lol!
Wow – glad you and your family are Okay!
Happy Holidays, my friend!!
Yeah that would have been bad. I’m surprised they got as far as they did… the fence actually hit the garage… all while they were driving in reverse…
Yeah, they could probably start a new career!
I’m not sure they grow here? And I’m not much of a green thumb. Plants generally wither around me.
Yeah, they mentioned they weren’t going to ever drive again :)
They did eventually find us… after they saw me taking photos of the damage. They’ll pay for the damages.
Yep, they’ll have to. I called the police and whatnot and the driver admitted their ‘guilt’ to the officer. We have some contractors coming out today to give us quotes and whatnot.
Thanks, Happy Holidays!
