Judge the Distance from the Ground and Pray


No, seriously. A tree limb just fell on me.

I spent the evening with Jacque and Evan, as I usually do on Wednesdays. We saw a storm was coming in, but I didn't leave before it hit.

I tried to ride it out at Jacque's, but it got pretty late, so around midnight, I decided to head home. It poured on me the whole way. The rain was falling harder when I reached home, so I just rushed inside.

When I got upstairs, I realized I had left my phone in the car. When the rain finally stopped, I went out to retrieve the phone.

Walking back to my building, I noticed the wind pick up. I stood in the middle of the street and looked up and around to see what the deal was. Then, I heard some cracking and wasn't sure what happened. Then I realized I had a strange sensation in my arm.

Everything must have happened in slow motion because all this happened and then I saw a giant tree limb hit the ground.

It took awhile for me to realize that limb had hit me before reached the street.

I had learned my lesson. I didn't stick around to see if more crap could fall on me.

I grabbed this piece that landed on my shoe. It's from one of the branches on the limb that attacked me.

Guess I won't be parking under that tree ever again!
