And they d**n near took my house with them. I’m exceptionally lucky the branch didn’t do any more damage than it did. It appears that it hit the roof, rolled off into the Bradford Pear, and then crunched the corner of the porch. If it hadn’t been for the pear tree, I think the porch would have not fared as well. Fortunately, the branch did manage to spare the two new AC compressors. The funny thing is that I have been eying that tree for some time wondering if it should go. Guess we know what the answer to that is now.
