MILWAUKIE, Ore. -- Vince Sherer is trying to make the best of a bad situation.

"I heard sustained winds then gusts that would wake you up," Sherer said.

He was fast asleep early Thursday morning, when he got a rude awakening.

"I woke up this morning and I saw this thing leaning up against my truck and I thought oh my goodness," Sherer said.

Now he's digging out from underneath a huge branch that slammed into his truck. He's out of work and doesn't know how he'll afford the repairs, but he's more worried these trees aren't done yet.

There are five massive trees lining his property, and he's got a bad feeling the next branch might crash through his mother's bedroom.

But Sherer is hoping the winds will die down soon, and that his luck will turn around.

"I'm trying to remain positive, trying not think about the negative aspects of what's going on," Sherer said.
