It happened late one night. We all dashed out of our houses to discover what had made the creak, crash, boom.
I guess the tree got old and gave up. I'm 5'4" tall. When I stand next to this, it comes up to my shoulder.
It was nice, all of us outside in the night, chatting, wondering, exclaiming, grateful no property or person was damaged when the giant tree came down.
We miss the tree. Our neighbor who loved it in her front yard got a mountain of firewood. But she misses the tree most of all.
A new season awaits a new tree.
