Well we just had an interesting turn of events. It's extremely hot and humid here tonight so instead of working outside in the heat we were sitting here relaxing. All of a sudden the was a muffled boom and the whole house shook. When I looked out the front window this is what I saw ..
Missed the house by less than 3 feet. This branch is longer than my house. The window hidden behind the leaves is where I was sitting when it hit ...As Get Smart's Don Adams would say ... Missed it by that much!
