The Nor’easter winter storm the past few days was named “Plato”…
and had winds over fifty MPH.
The winds changed directions rapidly and it is thought that the
rapid push and pull of the gale force winds snapped the 15 feet of
the tree top off.
Tonight’s Winter Storm “Q” is going inland, and the Downeast coast of
Maine, USA, has been forecast, to quote the weather man on the local
news this evening … “slush”. (I live between Bangor and Bar Harbor
mid way up the coast of Maine).

The tree WAS almost as tall as the church steeple next door…the church is at the top of the hill of the street I live on…the photo also is a bit off kilter to get both in the photo.
Tuesday, February 19, 2013, 15 feet of tree on railing of back deck. I was finding pieces
of the tree on the front lawn yesterday, Monday. Laughed and thought WoW !
Today, not laughing and saying “Blessed.”
You can see where it snapped off going back and forth in the winds.
I never heard a thing…a big surprise this morning looking out the
dining room window ! As far as I can tell, no damage to the house,
roof or windows…. it landed on the deck railing.

I hope everyone was safe. Though the poor tree and the deck did not fare too well.

Wow! You were fortunate. Glad you are okay and there was no damage.

Thank you…I was blessed for sure. My daughter used to sleep up on the second floor ….she was almost one when we moved in….and said when she was young, she was frightened the tree would crash down on the roof…we moved there in 1971, and it was a
stunning tree then.
Thanks for the comment

thank you for your comment…I appreciate it. Yes, I was blessed when the huge limb came down.

Kris, I sent this out on my blog…had the top of a very tall tree come down last night. … thought the references I may make in my haiku or comments might make sense if you saw what happened.
Hope all is well with you and your family. Peace, Siggi
