Lots Of Wind - Lots Of Luck

It was very windy in New York with gusts in the 50 mph range. Tree branches were falling in many neighborhoods ... including mine in Brooklyn. I came out of the house to find this scene at my front door. This giant branch had broken off from the old tree in front of my car. It just missed the hood of the vehicle and landed in the street.

The branch was long enough to block the entire street. After I returned - via my usual subway - from the Yankees' playoff win over the Twins, the branch was gone and the only damage was the front license plate of my car was hanging by a screw - the plate was nearly sheared off by the tree branch. I was lucky there was no further damage.
