So we had some storms last night






and they were pretty much done and over with by the time I went to bed around 10:30. But out of the blue there was a tree in the back yard of mine and my neighbors house (I live in a duplex with a fense seperating our yards) this huge tree smack dab in the middle decided that it didnt want to stand anymore, and just cracked right at the base and fell to the side of my neighbors house landing on her roof.
What amazes me is that this was right in my small back yard, where my bedroom window faces and I had my window open but dont remember hearing this crack or feeling it hit the house. My son who has his room downstairs said that he felt the house shake.
I was woken up by both of my dogs barking and my neighbor pounding on my door. Scared the beeeeeegeeeeegiiiizzzz out of me at midnight.
So, our fence that seperates our yards it down, the tree is suspended still in the air because the top part of the tree landed on her side of the roof, and is also being supported by her wire trellis thing that she has in her yard.

  3. Aack! I've heard trees that large fall. I've seen them crack concrete.... and evidently wreak havoc on underground gas lines years later. Be very careful! So glad to know you're okay.
