I was home today burning some vacation time. At about 2:15 I heard a loud bang and went outside to find this:




View from 2nd story master bedroom. Three trees came down at once. Lucky the two biggest snapped about half way up, if not the house would have been much worse.



My neighbors and Dad came over to help with cleanup.



There is quite a bit of damage, including holes through the roof.



My poor parts jeep helped break the fall. :( It was also where I stored my good hardtop.

I was surprised the jeep did not take more damage. After I got more of the tree cleared away I noticed why. Besides the house helping break the fall, some of the large branches helped hold up the trees. Note the one closest to the jeep.



Somehow the banch closest to the jeep went behind the front wheel, but in front of the headers. It then went between the frame and leaf spring down to the driveway and almost out the other side of the jeep. How it missed everything I don't know!

I didnt even see this post until now............


You know this is a sign to get off your hump and get that thing torn apart.......... All these vacation days should be used to wrench not web wheel.................


Looks to me like someone was making room for a wider garage.............. maybe Fallston Fab Two...............
