At Carnation’s Hopelink, Grandpa Bob Patterson volunteers in the Christmas gift room with daughter Laura Dockery, son-in-law Joe Dockery and granddaughter Jewell Dockery.

For 35 years Hopelink has been serving people in the Snoqualmie Valley, from the food bank to lunch bunch, to providing Christmas gifts for children.

“Hopelink does a great job with the gift room,” said Jennifer Filipovich, site manager at Carnation’s Hopelink. The community is asked to donate gifts primarily through giving tree tags. “It’s great seeing how much the community gives,” she continued.

But their house, located between Woodinville and Duvall, was surrounded by trees and the bedroom was upstairs. As the wind howled outside last Thursday night, the couple discussed whether they would be better off downstairs.

As they recounted what they called their “Christmas miracle,” the couple, who wish to remain anonymous, said the decision they made was fateful.

Over the noise of the wind, they heard what sounded like an “explosion” upstairs. When they checked to see what happened, they found a giant fir tree had come through the roof, crashing through the rafters and ceiling and landing right in the middle of the bed, crushing it.
