When It Rains, It Destroys — Is Texas the Worst?

Weather in the south, especially in Texas, can never be predictable. It can never just rain. A tornado, hail, destructive winds or even a hurricane has to come along with it. It’s a double-edged sword — we need the rain, but when it comes, there’s often hell to pay. Thus, the case at my house this morning.

My wife is a much lighter sleeper than I am, and something woke her up in the middle of the night last night. She woke up hearing some kind of noise, but didn’t think much of it. That was until this morning.

When she walked out the back door for work, she found the mysterious sound, and it wasn’t too far from our house:

After taking a closer look, it didn’t look like lightning was the reason, although it was everywhere all night in East Texas. Judging by the origination of the break on the limbs, it appears the winds were too much for the old tree in the backyard to keep this limb (two huge ones broke off) attached.

It only missed our house by a few feet, luckily. Now who needs some firewood?
