    wind + tall trees = bad!

    I was just sitting in the family room watching some tv, then i hear a loud ass CRACK.

    I look out the window (we have huge floor to ceiling windows in that room) and see a tree falling towards me.

    This is no small tree, MUCH taller then our 2 story house, it is in the middle of our yard.

    Damn I almost had a heart attack lol, the tree branches scraped the window, that is how close it was to crushing the roof in.

    It fell on a slight angle, if it fell perfecty straight I might not have been able to type this.

    Not a real bad storm, just some rain but VERY windy.

    With all of this bad weather we've had around here, I thought some of the trees here were going to blow over. One guy actually caught on video, a big ass tree falling over and smashing the hell out of his house.

    Well I guess the insurance man won't be able to argue with that now will he?
