    are the storms over there now?

    look on the bright side, at least your house wasn't split in two and washed down a river like some in WI today.

    I though the bright side was the next batch of firewood was delivered to the backyard and not dropped into the same room as the fireplace.

    Try to hire the "professionals" to take care of this job. :)

    or

    Try to cut the tree yourself (if it's safe to). :)

    Had nasty storms here too tonight, a huge tree limb fell on our backyard and a tree fell on power lines across the street. I was listening to the my scanner and it seems that trees and fires were being reported everywhere.

    Same here... trees were down and we had lost power for about 2 hours.

    Pretty bad, noisy storms.

    If the tree covered the yard, it sounds like an oak. The can get big enough to cover the yard from branch tip to tip.

    If a tree falls in the backyard, and I don't see it, did it happen??

    Discuss.

    Then I must live in the amazon! We have a "wall" of about 15 trees and then 5 dotted around the garden.

    I think what he's saying is he can't see the forest for the tree.


    (BTW: Don't mess with removing it yourself. People get killed that way)

    Come live in Washington. You would get lost in all the trees.

    A few years ago my wife and I were walking on the Davidson College campus (where she's a professor) after an ice storm. All the sudden we heard a crack and saw an enormous, 100-foot oak tree topple over onto the walkway, about 100 feet in front of us. Amazingly, only one person was in the falling path of the tree. As soon as she saw what was happening, she started to run in the opposite direction.

    She didn't run fast enough -- the tree landed right on top of her. But miraculously she was between branches (these branches were easily 9 inches thick), and escaped with only a sprained ankle.

    By coincidence, she was one of my wife's students, and she was scheduled to give an oral report in her class later that day. She called my wife to ask for an extension on the report, explaining that "she wouldn't believe what happened." She wouldn't have, either, had she not seen it herself.
