We had a big-ass wind storm and it took down a huge pine tree in the neighbor’s yard. Here’s the view from our side.
It just happened to fall in the right direction (meaning, away from us). It wiped out his fence and fell against the garage. It’s currently resting along the length of his driveway.
The Daughters had to climb on and examine the damage. They thought it was “cool.” It wouldn’t have been so cool if it had fallen in the opposite direction. In that case, it would have crashed right into our dining room.
A branch raked a big hole into the wall of his garage. The gash looks like the hull of the Titanic, post iceberg.
The backstory is that less than six days prior to this, a construction company finished putting new siding on our house. It cost many x $1,000 and it really made me wonder about the science of chance and probability. All this tree had to do was fall in a different direction and we’d have had a major calamity on our hands.
