Two nights ago and yesterday morning there was a lot of rain, wind, and thunder. When we drove out of the house, our usual way was blocked by this tree. A fire truck was on the other side of it. I figured lightning hit it or maybe it was dying and it was just a thread away from going "TIMBER!".It did grow on the middle of the hill on the side of the road.
When we got back the whole thing was chopped into pieces and left on the side of the road. I will assume they'll come back for it later. Either way, not my yard!
