....O great, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it..Ezekiel 13: 11

This was the aftermath of a windy tornado that we had on the evening of October 26, 2010.
Our weeping willow tree approximately 90 feet tall and about 30 + feet from our house met its demise.

The tree was over 100 years old and massive.....Thank goodness it did not blow over on our house..Although it was scary to wake up to this in the morning...it would have been worse if the tree had gone the other direction. My husband was out there with his chain saw getting rid of some of the debris when I shot this photo.

Thank you so much Davide Simone for the courtesy of your generous spotlight...

    Thank you for your comments...Several years before this another limb came down from this
    tree on the other side from a different storm...Two days before that storm we had some company who were visiting us who were standing underneath the limb before they left and they were remarking that they had never seen a tree that big...Who would think that two days later in the same spot they had been standing the limb would come down! I never felt entirely comfortable walking underneath that tree when I could hardly see where the top of it ended...It was so awesome but at the same time frightening!
