    Default used up one of my 9 lives this weekend.....

    satruday night, me and my 10 and 13 year old were out in the yard picking mulberries from a tree pictured in the first photo to the very far right ... pleasent evening

    we were standing at that wye in that tree when a wind blew up all of a sudden and toppled a rotten Ash treee down on us,,,,,
    anyway we heard a huge CRACK like a gun and we all knew what it was
    we had about 4 seconds to react and I scooted them away in the right direction.. WE stayed under the mulberry tree as we ran away from the sound....

    the mulberry tree ended up with a lot of broken branches which kept us
    from getting hit with the smaller branches...
    The tree actually raked down my left sholder and leg as it crashed into the ground...

    took out the power line to the home,

    I told my kids that they had just used up the first of their 9 lives..
    I am probably down to about 4 now...

    It was a zen moment......I had to stand there and think for a while
    about how lucky I was no one got hurt.
