I was sitting at my computer around noon today, minding my own business, when I heard a loud CRAACK! I went to the window to see what it was, and saw that a large tree had cracked about 15 feet above the ground, and the upper part had fallen away from the house, and was being supported by some other trees, suspending it above our driveway. I went out and moved my Civic right away, out of the path of its fall. The tree is still there at 5:30pm. It's a windy day, but the wind hasn't convinced it to fall. So we'll be parking our cars out in the turn-around, instead of next to the house, until my neighbor comes over, helps it to fall, and cuts it up and carries it away, to use for firewood for his maple syrup operation.

The tree stayed suspended for two weeks, until my neighbor came over and helped it to fall. Pictures of that here.

It's been almost 48 hours. And the bent tree is still there. Guess it's going to need some help.
