Timber!

So we had some nasty weather yesterday---high winds, over 2" of rain, even some hail. I was sitting all cozy in front of the fireplace when I heard a sound; a faint crack, followed by a muffled thud. Didn't even wake up the dog. I assumed our outdoor towel rack had  blown over and went back to my knitting.

Imagine my surprise, then, when an hour later I passed by the sunroom window and saw this:


The towel rack is just fine.

This poor tree is not.

C and B have gotten a start on hacking it up.
This sad tree was not very large, and managed not to do any damage when it fell, but you can see it just missed hitting another tree that could very well have been knocked onto the roof of our sunroom. So we are quite lucky in that respect. We knew this tree was in bad shape---losing its bark and infested with bugs--and removing it was on our to-do list. We just hadn't gotten to it yet. Thanks, Mother Nature!
