ST. LOUIS, Mo. (WHAS11) -- One Missouri woman's decision to bake Christmas cookies may have saved her life.
According to the local fire department, strong winds brought a tree crashing down on top of the woman's house, smashing through the window she'd been sitting near just moments before.
The homeowner said she'd just gotten up to bake Christmas cookies in the kitchen when she heard the crash.
The woman is staying with a neighbor while engineers figure out if the house is still safe to live in.
