Travel our rt. 56 and not keep you eye on the road, weather clear road dry, just as we came around a corner and over a hill a BIG TREE fell taking down power lines with it, we got stopped in time but darn near got rear ended by the next car that wasn't watching. The lines were sparking and the tree limbs started to smoke pretty good. No one could get cell service there so we off roaded around the tree top to find a place with reception to make the call. 30 or 40 seconds earlier and we would have been one with the tree.

Yes, the fear was someone coming around the curve and getting caught up in both us and the live wires and tree, it could have been much worse. What surprised me was in spite of all the arcing and fire ect. it didn't trip an overload somewhere. The man was watching.
