|Subject: One hell of a wake up call! Thu May 13, 2010 2:08 pm|| |
And here nothing has ever woken me from the deep slumber I endure every night. About 6:40am though a tree just outside my basement door, which is where my room is split in two, and came crashing down against our house. Several branches also slid into the sliding doors I had open last night cause I was enjoying the cool air and sounds of the rain before and while I slept.
Anyway, images galore:Right outside my door in the basement, I had already moved and broken off many of the branches blocking access. Notice the brand new fence that the tree is eerily close too that I put up not 1.5 yrs ago which I'm hoping whomever is on the way to cut the remainder unstable portion down won't damage...more on this below!Up on our deck where the tree reached, with Khalus & Kunae checking it out...heheVarious images from outsideFrom above, and now this is on the other side of our home, and one of my step-brothers happened by today having not known about the tree and decided he wanted a better look from ground level. Instead of going through the basement door; now clear, which of course he didn't ask about or tell me he was about to do this, he opted instead to travel around to the other side of the yard and attempt to hop the fence.
Note the gate right fucking there and I was just talking to the douche that we didn't want the fence damaged by the tree, and his excuse...it was locked! I was right there on the deck above with the key but my back was turned when he decided on this course. And yeah no sorry or I'll pay for it....my mother being dumb as usual; its only a pole, no its not...look at the fence, its wrinkled and thats such a bitch to straighten out if I at all can!I guess one funny part was right under where he landed is one of Kunae's shit zones, and he landed and rolled through it and tons of mud...rofl

That was a really nice healthy looking tree on your property.
Must have been some really strong winds passing bye. Thankfully
it did not do more damage then that. Got to hate it when they fall
over on your car.

Good thing no damage was sustained to the house.
I have a friend who cut down a tree and it went through the roof of his cottage. Best part was I got paid to fix it all up.
"There are some things that can beat smartness and foresight? Awkwardness and stupidity can. The best swordsman in the world doesn't need to fear the second best swordsman in the world; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn't do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn't prepared for him; he does the thing he ought not to do; and often it catches the expert out and ends him on the spot." -Mark Twain
