I heard a disturbing sound

The other day when school was cancelled we had lots of ice and sleet and wind. ALLLLL Day we had wind. In the afternoon I heard a sound. It sounded like a branch had hit the roof and slid off. I thought nothing more about it. When hubby got home, I mentioned it to him. I had not been out all day, and I did not go out that evening. He said yes, a branch from the cedar tree had come off and slid on the roof. Hubby did not say A BRANCH that was about a fourth of the tree broke off. You can see it in the picture. I did not see it until I went out to go to work the next day. On a warm day we will probably hook a rope to it and drag it down the hill to the shed so hubby can cut it up for fire wood. We will burn it in our fire pit. We plan to get the cedars removed anyway, because they are full of bag worms. Oak mites live in them in the summer as well. It is just time for a change.. We want to replace them with something like chestnut trees, perhaps. So I was not imagining things. I did hear a branch hit the roof.

I had one-third of a trifurcated tree take a bite out of my garage in the last place I lived. One limb landed in the yard of the other end-unit (good thing the girls weren't playing in the yard) and the third limb fell into the alley. The first one also took out a garden shed in its own yard, and the one that bit my garage also knocked down part of my neighbor's fence on the other side. Not nice.
