I really like trees, especially Madrones. I really prefer them standing up.
In November I publicly worried about a fir tree that seems like a potential hazard during wind storms. I’ve also publicly worried about my beloved Madrones. I think I confused Mother Nature, because today she sent a piece of the giant Madrone tree that’s the focal point of my front garden crashing down on top of my car.
When the insurance adjuster asked – how big is the limb?” I blurted “about 10 to 12 inches in diameter and about 40 feet long.” I immediately began second guessing myself when she said “Wow!” So I went back out to look and I may actually have underestimated the size. It also came from way up in the tree – also about 40 feet.
It’s still a big tree.
I really loved that car.
And I really hate car shopping.
