Oh, Snap!!

I don’t exactly know when this happened, but I discovered it at 5:45pm today, and it wasn’t like that at 4pm when I left for the post office. We’ve had three days of pretty steady rain, and the wind has been rather gusty today, so I guess this is what can happen. We’re pretty lucky it fell in the direction it did — that tree was right next to power lines!

On the plus side, now we can scratch “Chop down old dead tree” off the to do list.

Annie in Austin's Gravatar Oh wow – you were lucky, Anneliese! Tree’s down and there’s no car under it either…sometimes they aim for automobiles ;-]

Anneliese's Gravatar Hi Annie!

Fortunately, the cars aren’t usually parked where they’re in danger of trees falling on them. The house, on the other hand, is not "out of the woods" so to speak.

There were several large pecan trees in the parking lot at my old apartment in Austin. During a thunderstorm, a very large limb fell onto the parking spot only three cars away from where mine was parked. The targeted spot was miraculously empty at the time.
