  trees falling .....
  Posted by: pilotwingz on Jul-05-11 10:23 PM (EST)

..... once out on Lake Redman early in the morning , mist just lifting , we heard this loud cracking sound that drew our attention . We couldn't see the tree that was falling but the fall sounded long as it was takimg a number of branches from trees close to it . Very loud echoing down into the lake area . The falling tree was on a pretty steep hillside .

Back about 71 give or take a year , a young couple from G.B. high school were in Patapsaco (swinging bridge area) and a tree fell and killed him . They were friends of the girl I was dating who became my wife later .

hey Chip , we were up on the C&O in Hancock on the 4th . I'm guessing you were asleep in a tent when the storm rolled through . When a storm wakes me up while camping , I just roll over and go back to sleep , what else can you do ?? Having a tree 50' or so away fall while drinking morning coffee would be an interesting start to the day !!
