Hilda mentioned in her post the 40 mph winds we had in Michigan's U.P. here on Friday. This is now the view out my dining room onto my deck. I was sitting in the dining room Friday night and the top 2/3 of a huge old cedar tree in our backyard was hit by a gust of wind and broke off. It landed on the deck, mashed the railing and grill and hit just enough of the house to bend the gutter. It hit so hard that it knocked the picture on that wall crooked, not to mention that I jumped a few feet in the air when it hit.
In the first pic you can see what's left of the tree in the top right corner.
