We had a big storm and once during it we heard a loud crack and boom sound! The boys and I looked at each other. It was a sound different and closer than the sound the other rumbles were making. In the morning we found this.
That is one large tree limb that looks like a small tree next to the big tree. When it fell, it feel and embedded itself into the ground by about a foot or so! What if that limb had fallen when the boys were standing there? The boys and I couldn't get the limb out of the ground. It was in there tight like the "sword in the stone"! Matthew had to pull it out!
Now I find myself looking up to eye those branches from time to time. While the boys found it intriguing, I found it scary. I wish I had taken the photo with a boy next to it so I could have shown how massive this thing was.
It was neat and caused some excitement here. :)
