If a tree falls…
So regarding the age-old philosophical question: “If a tree falls and no one is there, does it make a sound?” Well, if you are in the nearby vicinity, the answer is “yes!” An ear-splitting crack, actually. Last night, we had the spookiest weather imaginable for Halloween night, with 20-30 mile wind gusts that shook the foundations of the homes and… apparently some longstanding oaks as well. It’s easy to see how this one could not withstand the buffeting of the wind, which went on for several hours on end. Nature sure had fun welcoming in November around here!

I’ve been following your posts for quite some time and enjoying them but I don’t think those trees are oaks. Just a silly observation. keep up the nice work.
Bob… that is funny because I actually had that thought as soon as I hit “post.” Normally I am so careful about fact-checking, but this time I slipped. You are probably right. So let’s say “oak” is a metaphor in this instance. Thanks for following and for the nice words.
It’s hard to fall quietly when you are that big!!
Indeed Lyle. The bigger they are…. you know what they say!
