If a A Tree Falls in the Forest...

Sandy was ambling through the forest today when his path was blocked!!
There was a tonne of branches and twigs and tree trunks on the ground...

And the big old tree trunk had been snapped in half  too!! What the heck?

And then Sandy looked back... way... way back and saw the beginning of this huge mess... A beary large Douglas Fir tree had fallen over... that must have made a huge crash!

Look at that... wow... It's all snapped and splintered at the base. We had some gale force winds a few days before and this tree obviously didn't survive it.

Sandy's beary glad he wasn't walking in the forest when this happened!! He could have gotten "squeeshed"! Never go for a walk in the woods when gale force winds are blowing!

  1. Oh boy! We are glad too that you weren't there when that tree fell down! When there is a storm home is the best place to be!

  2. Right before Halloween, a Sandy visited us, but that Sandy was a mean ole Hurricane that turned into something called a Super Storm. (Something about a Nor'easter meeting a hurricane.) Many in our parents' families were affected. Our picnic table blew over, but it's plastic and didn't hit anything in our garden. Neices and nephews were removing buckets of water in the dark from basements west of Philly. Mommy's brother's family lives four miles from the ocean in North Jersey, so they lost two trees (none hit their house, but the one next to their shed hit the other side of the shed when it split in half, and then stayed like that through the full storm) and were without electricity for 11 days. Her Dad lives in the woods, and five of his trees went down. One hit his house, knockingthrough the attic and taking a bit of the ceiling out in an upstair's bedroom, but he lives donstairs. He was also without power for three days. It was warm before our Sandy hit. It got cold because she hit. Good thing Mommy's family all had wood stoves and/or fireplaces.

    So, also stay out of the woods and away from the ocean when a hurricane hits. City living is safe. Our nearest tree is on the next block. lol

  4. Well Sandy, you could also use some of the branches of that fir tree to decorate for Christmas! We love the pine smell at Christmas time!
