washington dc derecho: big tree down
This was the matriarch tree shading the house one of our daughter's soccer teammates. It snagged the power lines on the way down and took two utility poles along with it. It also raked the front of the next door house, ripping off the gutters. The massive roots were intermeshed with the sidewalk and thrust over ten feet into the air. The dirt from the rootball was forced up into the wheel well of the car, initially preventing the owner from driving until he could dig out.
