Timber!

So I had an interesting night. I was out galavanting till about 1:00am Friday night and had just gotten home. I was exhausted and quickly scurried into bed. I had just turned off my light about 2:30ish, when I heard this unbelievable crash. I thought it might have been thunder, but there wasn't a cloud in the sky and no wind whatsoever. Then it hit me. "Tree." We live in a forest (sorta), against a hill with five million trees just threatening to topple on us. And topple it did, scraping the house, tearing the roof, totaling the car flat and breaking our concrete driveway. Thank God no one was hurt...it was no less than 3 feet from Jordan's room. Crazy night.
