At 3:30 in the morning I heard a huge crash on our deck. I tried to see what it was, but couldn’t really tell in the dark. Sleep was a little futile after that point because I was watching the huge fir trees behind our house sway at unnatural angles, making me wonder if we were going to have on land on us. I finally knocked off, only to be woken around six to crashing thunder right over our house. We haven’t had a storm (that wasn’t even forecast) like that in a long time.
Once it got light out and we got up, this is what we found on our back deck … it’s probably at least eight feet long. No wonder it scared the crap out of me when it landed!
