Today at about 3:30 in the afternoon lightening struck a large Live Oak Tree in our front yard causing the tree to explode. It sounded like a bomb and looked like…well…an explosion. Bark, limbs and branches went flying far and wide some landing over the house in the backyard. As I write this at 7:30 pm a crew from the city is taking the tree down.
