(can you spot Missy?)
The morning we got back from our weekend trip up to Chapel Hill, two huge TREE LIMBS came crashing down in our yard, barely missing LORD FOCUS, my beloved Ford Focus and the roof and front of our house, RANCHO COCOA. Actually, what we think happened is that a huge limb from one tree (possibly struck by lightning the night before?) fell off one tree, hitting another huge limb on another tree on the the opposite end of our front yard, bringing it down with it. The end of the first limb that fell looked blackened and charred, leading us to suspect a lightning strike. I had heard a loud THUD that morning and thought that it was Missy accidently slamming a door somewhere in the house. When we stepped outside on our way to work, we were taken quite by surprise. We're quite lucky that nothing worse happened! We're hoping some tree maintenance pros can come out this weekend to finally chop up the limbs and take down any other tree limbs that look "dangerous"...
