We had the most beautiful wild cherry tree in our back yard... had being the key word in that sentence. Where did it go? Well... a first in my life... lightning stuck on Saturday and this is what is left:
Daniel was peeking out the window when the strike hit. It was so powerful that it sent the top half of the tree sailing straight into the air. When it came straight down, it lodged into the ground within inches of the trunk. A huge section of the tree landed in our neighbors yard.
Tomorrow, "Bob" will be here bright and early to clean up the mess and take down 2 other trees that have me a bit worried after this incident. NEVER a dull moment around here.
