I've lived long enough to see trees destroyed in any number of ways. I've seen them drowned out when sloughs flooded, I've seen them blown over, burnt up in lightning strikes, hit by trucks, ripped up by tornados, but this one is a new on me.

This tree seems to have been twisted till it cracked open and fell. I can't imagine that the interior was completely rotted, because it seemed green an healthy, fully filled out with needles.

The amazing thing is that it turned, twisted and fell away from the farmhouse.

Was there a twister or some wind that twisted the tree? This is a strange look and very fortunate for the farmhouse.

That was one fortunate family and house.
