    When it rains it pours!

    I dont work on mondays cuz im lazy. Everyone else around me does. So my neighbors have a nice surprise awaiting them when the get home.

    It only rained for 10 minutes and BOOM, i thought it was thunder, this huge branch fell from about 30ft. Luckily it hit a few other large branches on the way down otherwise it was going into their roof.

    yeah, make an example of it. yell to the trees: "see what happens? drop branches on our stuff and I'll cut you up and make a fence out of you"

    But seriously, it is a good job that 'huge' branch didn't land on his roof, it might have knocked his TV antenna out of alignment or cracked a tile!!

    Aha, it looks as though the trees' axiom of uniform stress was unable to withstand the sudden and unexpected loading far beyond the mechanical properties of the primary limb. Nothing new, happens all the time
