Guardian Angel watching out for us

On Wednesday, December 2nd, Macon had yet another terrible storm - it seems that 2009 was the year of the rain!!! - We are no longer in a drought situation.

On this day, I went to work in the LNS to help out the owner, DH, Terry was at school teaching and DD, Lindsay was at work. Now this was probably a good thing for when we got home from work we found our neighborhood filled with broken branches along the streets and in everyones yards. However, upon looking out of our back window and subsequently going out onto the back deck - we found one of our trees had uprooted and fallen --- Thankfully it was away from our house!!!
Here is the hole that was where the tree stood.
This tree was huge in length!!.Here is the end just before it dropped into the stream.
The stream with branches from the fallen tree.

View of the back of our house about 1/2 the length of the tree.

On the other side of the garden bed at the foot of the stairs to the deck.
A view of the roots.

Needless to say, I am glad that I was not at home, for I am sure that I would have had a 'heart attack' hearing this huge tree fall.

Thank goodness it fell away from the house - we would have been living in a hotel and this computer and sewing room would no longer be!!!

Well off to get some stitching done - Have a great weekend and thank you for stopping by.
