Sunday 4th May Midday

Sunday 4th May midday, a full grown seemingly healthy plain tree outside next door fell over with a huge thud that sounded like a bomb going off far away. The tree fell downhill (towards our house) - the canopy was half over the pavement and half over our front wall, the branches pushed up against the front downstairs bay windows. Fortunately we could still get out of the house. Remarkably nobody was passing by, no cars were crushed and nothing got damaged apart from one window sill getting chipped. Caused a lot of hoopla though. Much leaning out the window discussing with neighbours and passers by.
