Today’s Adventure

It rained most of the day and we had strong winds out of the east.  Driving into the city to meet our son and daughter-in-law for lunch was not much fun for the heavy rain and traffic.  Coming home was different.  The rain had slackened and so we had much better visibility.

We had been in the house for a short while when I noticed a tree branch down beside the road.  It looked to be all on the lawn.  But a closer look revealed the rest of the story.  Just minutes after we had driven by, this happened.


A work crew from the county road commission is now clearing the mess out of the road.  Update to follow.

  1. We are so fortunate to have lots and lots of trees in Michigan, but we do lose them from time to time. Did you hear about an Oak tree at MSU that had to be cut down ?…It was 350 years old.

    • Yes, it is sad to lose a tree. They are very important to our Eco-system as they consume carbon dioxide and give off oxygen. Isn’t that amazing? I’m in awe of the wisdom of the creator.

      That tree was a poplar, and they don’t have a long life span. Many consider them a junk tree. I’ve seen signs that that tree was in trouble. So it’s no huge surprise. Still, as you say, it is sad.
