That's ½ of my maple tree resting comfortably on my neighbor's shed, thanks to today's high winds. It's also resting comfortably on the utility pole in the corner of my yard, and I've therefore lost my landline telephone service. Still have cable and electricity, (obviously, or you wouldn't be reading this), but I wonder for how long. Phone & power companies have been notified.
My neighbor is apparently away for the holidays. What a lovely gift she'll be coming home to. (Sorry, neighbor!) Now I wonder just how much this is going to cost me....
I heard and watched the whole thing happen -- quite dramatic. I'm just thankful it's not on either of our houses or cars. But the day isn't over, and the high wind advisory has been extended until 10 p.m. Exciting times!
And a Happy New Year to you, too!
