Trees may grow in Brooklyn but they fall down in Florida!
A few weeks ago the weather radio started squawking and tornado warnings were announced for Podunk and the surrounding areas. Generally, it's just noise and a little rain and wind. This time even on the t.v. weather channel, it said we could be in for some strong gusts of wind. No sooner than the announcer said that, I heard a large thump. Oh, oh, hope it's not that big dead pine tree just about on the lot line on the neighbor's vacant lot .
It was! Landed in our front yard. Sheesh, it figures! . . but thankfully it didn't hit the house or my holly tree!
TBG went out and measured the tree which turned out to be 65 feet long. That's a lotta tree!! If it went the other way it would have taken out my master bath. Phew! One less thing to worry about now that it's gone although it seems as though it's always something, isn't it?
