I have been keeping an eye on an old maple limb on my property that had half broken and was nearly on the ground but had survived to sprout some vertical limbs that were very good candidates for sticks but I had left them for the time being thinking to get back to them soon. I also had a Sorrel or Sourwood tree growing nearby that I had no designs on for anything but as it was the only one on my property I was glad to have it. It was fairly large and as it is a slow growing tree, also pretty old. Well the other night in the middle of a rain storm I heard a loud crack and a crashing sound and woke the next morning to see that the Sorrel had broken off about 10 feet off the ground and come down right on top of the maple crushing it into match sticks. I guess I can file this one under "Ya snooze, Ya lose" or "Never put off till tomorrow etc. etc" What are the odds? I just had to laugh.
