Tree down!

It was not pleasant to look out the window and find part of a tree in my front yard, but there are so many ways it could have been worse: it didn't hit the house or break any windows, didn't bring down any power lines, didn't hit any cars, didn't squash any people. And, since its blocking the way, I don't have to shovel the front walk!

I called the DPW, but with 4-6 inches of very wet heavy snow in my North-of-Boston suburb, I'm guessing they're a little busy. Be interesting to see how long the big branch stays in my front yard.

It didn't phase the dog one bit--she barely even glanced at it. I wonder what the squirrels think?

I think my dog would try (unsuccessfully) to drag it away as her own personal stick.

I'm glad no one got hurt and nothing was damaged.

So with 4-6 inches of snow, did you get an official snow day? Or did you still have to shovel your way out to work?

Great photo!! Peter wanted me to call & tell you to send a photo of the tree to fox news. This is much better.
