This is the surprise we awoke to this morning in our front yard. I can’t believe how lucky we are in the way the tree fell – it hit no houses or other trees. Of all the trees in our yard, I’m not sure why this one came down. The storms that moved through last night were certainly threatening. I recall looking out the bathroom window when it sounded like a train was coming through our neighborhood and wondering if the little birches were going to survive.
There was a squirrel’s nest in the tree – I hope the little guys are all ok!
