Revenge of the Trees - Part 2

So far, 2010 has not been a good year for trees and my family.  In March, a tree fell on my Sweet Husband's car as he was driving on the interstate!  Thankfully he walked away with just a few cuts and bruises.  The car did not survive.  On Saturday while a thunderstorm was brewing and wind was whirling, we heard a loud thump.  We wondered aloud what it might be but didn't investigate.  Later that evening the Husband stepped into the back yard and saw this:

Which turned out to be this:

Which broke off of this:

See that big patch of blue sky.  That's where the big limb used to live.  Remarkably there were only a few scuffs on the roof and the edge of the back gutter was bent a little.  Hopefully we can make it through the rest of the year without another attack!  Do you think they like compliments? Or take bribes?  Or like their trunks rubbed?

  1. A tree fell on my roof 2 summers ago on a gorgeous sunny day. Fell right through my bedroom and bath. The place was a wreck, but had a fresh pine scent for weeks.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you.
