Arrow If A Tree Falls In A Parking Lot, Does It Make A Sound?

Well Yesterday at work, all was normal parking cars. That was until a tree decided it was time to give up after hanging over the parking lot for 3+ years. All I heard was a popping sound, when I looked up I thought I saw the tree move a little bit. I kept staring thinking it was my mind playing tricks on me. When I saw it move again I hauled A$$ outta there. When it fell it hit 3 vehicles but only crushed one. No one was around it so everyone was okay. Still was a close call. Now time for the aftermath pics:

NOTE: The car door on the right is where I was standing when I heard it pop.



If the whole thing fell it would have taken out the powerlines:

A ford F-150 was the only casualty:


The Clean up:



The total destruction to the truck is revealed:





well. Be safe out there.
Also to answer the first question, yes...it does make a sound.

Tree obviously couldn't pass up the chance to take out 2 Fords at once

You didn't bother breaking into your coworkers cars and moving them out before the tree fell???? (And risking your life??) What a bad coworker..

I didn't read through the entire post, but would your truck have been hit had you not moved? Scary to think about where I park now

I wonder if your typical insurance policy covers that..

Damn Trees, always running these ploys. Of course when I hit a tree they don't want to do the backhand deals then.

It wasn't my truck thankully. I work as a parking director, I pretty much tell people how to park in the parking lot for a show. Guy parked in a very unlucky spot. The unfourtante part is I talked to him afterward and he said had just payed his truck off.

Bet that was the tree's exact words. Trees are very heard to deal with sometimes.
