Interesting at my house this morning!

Earlier this morning I was mixing cookies in the kitchenaid.  All of the sudden there was a HUGE crash, cracking and booming sounds.  Yes, sounds.  It went on for it seemed awhile.  I thought my house was crashing in it was so loud!  I had a really sick feeling in my stomach and went to look out the front before heading up the stairs to see what was going on.  I didn't have to go upstairs.  This is what I saw.
Above view from my driveway.

The above picture is in the street facing east.

In the picture above you can tell how massive this branch is by the mailbox and that is a city truck in the background.  This is in the street facing west.

In the picture above you can see where the limb came from.  Not the lower broken limb part.  The one above that.  The lower one fell a couple of weeks ago.
Fortunately no one was driving by at that time.  Scary!  At the moment I cannot get a vehicle out of the driveway.  So we are stuck at home it appears.  If you click on the pictures, you can see a larger view.

Yikes, glad it wasn't yesterday when I was picking up Stacy. Well, you didn't want to go anywhere anyway because of no air in the car right? ha ha

I am glad you are okay. I know how loud it is when a limb breaks and falls as it happened to us in February during the ice storm.

It is scary! We lost a huge willow this month and it brushed the house on the way down... at 1:45am. Yeah, that will wake you up.
