Timber!!

Sunday evening Mom prays that she will wake up early on Monday morning.  Well, God answered her prayer in a very unusual way.  Around 4:30 she and Dad were awakened by a very strange noise.  They looked out the window and saw a very peculiar sight indeed.



Yep.  That's right, one of our trees in our front yard came crashing down (one half of it).  Thankfully it was the half that was toward the street, and it missed hitting our old brown suburban by inches.  To say the least, we have plenty of work on our hands.  Caleb, our friend, Jaden & I worked for several hours on Monday morning/afternoon to get it cut off, as well as the other half of the tree.  Now our front yard is filled with limbs, sticks and huge logs.  More work to be done...

Wow! What caused it to fall?

Allison,

The tree had been rotting out in the fork, and we tried to repair it a couple of years ago with a big screw. That held it up for a while, but then I guess the high wind a week ago was 'the straw that broke the camel's back', so to speak.
