All 3 of us were napping. (The girls were gone to day care.)
Whump! We heard a huge thump, and felt the ground shake, at the same time.
It was so strong, it woke us all up!
We jerked up outta sleep, saying, “What was that??” DD1 hollered, “Mama?? What was that??” I said, “Honey! What was that?? Go look !”
He looked out the window, and a ginormous oak branch lay in the front yard, broken all to pieces.
We all said, “Thank God the girls weren’t here! That’s one of the spots they love to play!!”
God was so merciful!
DH called the landlord, and he came and hauled it away.
Too bad we don’t have a fireplace, free wood for the winter!!
Several other people in the neighborhood are cutting down big trees. We always take the girls to watch, since their daddy is a tree trimmer.
Then, 2 weeks later, another branch fell!! This time, it fell across the road, so we weren’t in any danger.
Okay, that’s enough!! We better have someone come look at this tree too!! Looks as if old age is making it fall apart!!
So beautiful, and majestic!
I love Grandfather oaks! But not enough to risk our life and limbs!! Much better they lose theirs than ours!!
