Not again!

A few years ago when I was working 3rd shifts. I came home one morning and crawled into bed and passed out. What felt like only 5 mins later my dad came running up stairs and asked me if I was alright. I looked at him like "what the heck". He said he was surprised it didn't wake me up. "It sounded like a 747 hit our house!" It seems the tree that is out by the road in front of the farmhouse decided it wanted to try and kill me. A branch (branch hahaha it was as big as some trees) decided to fall onto the porch and almost came through my window. My bed was right next to the window at the time.

Last night as I was wrapping up what I was doing on the computer about to go crawl into bed. I heard a creak a rustle and a big BOOM! The house didn't shake... so I got curious. I went downstairs but it was so dark out I couldn't see anything. But then this morning....







Yes the same tree! Gladly it didn't hit the house this time. Anyone want some firewood?

Snap! I had a similar experience. I was woken by what I thought was an explosion. I had a quick look round, saw nothing untoward, and went back to sleep. The next morning I opened the front door, and discovered half of my (very large) tree was lying right across the road. The clear-up was a major job as I recall.
