We got a lot of rain and wind last night and as you can see
from the above pictures we had one big oak tree come down.
We are so grateful it missed the house and our vehicles parked
in the driveway. It did damage many of my bushes and the
swing (hopefully it can be repaired). My husband was out
early with his chainsaw and got some of it cut up before it
started raining again.

Wow! All we got here was some rain. Glad you are both okay and that nothing was badly damaged.

On the positive side, you now have one less tree that will be dropping its leaves this autumn, so that means a little less time spent raking!

Wow is right! Bill and I are so sorry, but thankful it didn't hit the house or vehicles. On a lighter note, Bill said to ask Karl to cut it in 2' lengths!

Holy Cow ! You are lucky. That tree could have gone any direction. Glad you're all right.
