Woke up at 130ish to someone pounding on our door. Somehow the sound of a huge tree limb ripping off and smashing our camper didnt wake me? Neighbors across the street had been walking home and saw it and wanted to make sure we did too.
This HUGE oak tree dropped a limb big enough to completely surpass our 23’ camper, cover the whole road and part of the across-the-street neighbors yard. It ripped the power line conduit all off our house and somehow didnt disconnect the line, live wires all over the ground though. Streetlight wire also down, that one was actually snapped. Limb missed our daily driver vehicles by about ten feet.
About six police officers arrived first, followed by dominion and then county utility workers. The county was only going to clear the roadway (leaving the tree in our RV and across the driveway. They changed their minds obvs and pulled it off the camper, dominion hauled away debris after the county cut it all down.
Power came back on at 8am, six hours later. The yard is cleaned, the only evidence of the mess is a huge hole in the oak tree, scrapes down the road from the front end loaders hauling the logs and managing the fallen limb, and our trashed RV. People that drive doen the road are straight up STOPPING to stare hahaha. Shit yall. Couldve been way worse, noone was hurt and our animals are fine, it wasnt hot enough to miss the ac thankfully, and dominion had it all knocked out pretty damn fast.
The neighbors whose tree lost the limb have been gone the whole night, still arent back. The older lady that lives across the street was also gone last night, she would have lost her minivan if its been parked in its normal place. Crazy!!!
