I don't remember if it was during Sandy or Irene hurricanes here but we had tons of big trees blown over all over this area. I was driving home and the winds were wild with all sorts of branches blowing across the road. In my rear view mirror I watched a giant pine hit the road right after I had passed by it. If I had been seconds later it would have crushed my truck. It was a true pucker moment and when I arrived home my wife was calling because she was also driving home and was stuck just a few miles up from our home where other giant pines were blocking the road. I had to drive up to her from the other end and we parked her car in a field and got home. This place looked like a war zone after those storm blew through and we had no pole power for 8 days.
