A couple weeks ago Trevor and I were woken up around 4:30 in the morning to the loudest, scariest sound. It shook our entire apartment and followed with tons of cracking and loud snapping. Then there was one big smash. Our whole bodies felt it. I have felt many earth quakes so I knew it wasn't that. We had been in a deep sleep, and the next thing you know we had both jumped up in our beds in panic, as if simultaneously gasping from a nightmare.
"What on earth was that?" Trevor shouted.
"I don't know, but it kind of sounded like a tree falling?"
"How do you know what a tree falling sounds like?"
"I don't know, but I would imagine that it would sound just like that. If it wasn't a tree maybe it was thunder, but it isn't raining or anything so...."
We were too tired to get out of bed and figure it out, but before going back to bed I did say, "Well if I am right, and it was a tree, it better not have fallen in our parking lot, and I sure hope it didn't land on our car."
After a restless night of sleep (couldn't really fall back asleep after it happened) I walked into our front room and peaked out of our window. I could see a giant pile of green. Lo and behold a tree had fallen in our parking lot. I braced myself as I went outside hoping to not see our car under it. There was a crowd surrounded by a very large tree. On it's way down it had hit the side of our apartment building, tearing part of the roof off and smashing two cars. The two cars parked a couple spaces from our cars *phew* but the minute I felt happy for us, I felt bad for our neighbors. But considering how big the tree was the damage really was minimal.
That afternoon the crew who came to clean up the tree told us the other one that was next to it could go down at any minute and that they need to get it removed. So we couldn't park in our parking lot for awhile. Then they started repairing the roof and now I don't even need to start my alarm the dang nails start right above our bed nice and early for us... it sucks. We are the top floor and on the side where the tree hit, so it is extra loud for us :) haha. They should be done soon, and I can't wait for more sleep and my parking spot again!
Has anyone ever had something like this happen to their home, car, etc?! It is a pretty crazy experience?!
