Even though I wasn’t cooking anything, the grill gods were smiling on me this day. There has been a pine tree that had snapped off it’s trunk and was leaning on another tree in the woods behind my house. I was far into the woods and was leaning in a direction parallel to my house.. It had survived many strong storms. During the recent strong storms this tree came crashing down during the night, and not the way I thought it would.
As you can see from the picture above the tree didn’t care about how I thought it would fall. The tree fell at a 45 degree angle to my house. The picture above shows the tree which missed my smoker and snow blower on the way down, More importantly, it missed hitting the house by 6 inches (15 cm).
So even though I wasn’t grilling anything, the barbecue gods were definitely smiling on me this day,
