One Lucky Guy

Driving through Elkridge this afternoon, we spotted this oak tree laying on Frank Harmons house.
It is actually two trees  or whats also called a double leader.. Mama Wordbones pointed out that you should never let a tree do this. Early on you need to cut one of them off. “If not the whole tree gets messed up. That’s just basic tree stuff,” she added.

Somebody must've forgot to tell Frank about that.
The roots did look pretty shallow on this behemoth.
Frank was a lucky guy. He had been asleep in his bedroom when sometime around 2:00 AM the winds of Irene toppled the double oak on this house. A roof truss crashed into the bed next to him. He escaped unharmed. I can't say the same for his house.
