    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:eek:. 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:confused:. 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.

    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.. :D:D

    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 :eek:

    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.

    True that:)
    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:mad:.
    To bad it wasn't made of steel:D

    Never was a fan. Guess the tree wasn't either:broccoli:.
