if a tree falls in the forest...













...does it make a sound?

a big storm blew through late yesterday afternoon. high winds and driving rain accompanied it. there were branches down on the road here and there and we decided to check our forest today. to our surprise, there was a wide swath of downed trees. i tried to count, but stopped at 35. there are probably at least 50 and it's a clear path, like a tornado went through, even tho' otherwise conditions weren't as we know them for tornadoes in the midwest of the US (instead of hot and humid, it was rather chilly and no lightning and thunder seemed to accompany the storm).

what i wonder is how we didn't hear all those trees crashing down, even tho' we're a kilometer or so away from our forest. it must have made quite a racket.

Freakish weather has become too common.

Trees know how to fall gracefully especially in a storm. If on the other hand they get chopped down they make a hell of a racket, a sort or last protest aimed to let everybody know they're not pleased.

Glad to know they did not fall closer to your house!

Take Care

Oh no! But at least it'll make way for new growth and Husband can do something with the wood?
