    I was kicking myself for not having a camera when I saw this because I too thought of Stopped/Watched. What you can’t quite see is that the top of the tree just brushes the front window of the house across the street–it must have been terrifying for anyone who was there.

    How sad.

    Actually, the tree fell slowly and quietly. The people in the house barely missed didn’t even hear it! Neither did 6 out of 7 people in the house from whence it fell. The 7th was looking put the window and saw it go, roughly 7:45 pm Saturday. There was a line of similar damage between there and end of Charlton – straight line winds, perhaps?

    Really interesting about the silence—and thanks for updating.
