And I mean that in a good way Ruben, as you're life is much more dramatic than most of ours. This was taken a few blocks away from the GF's place after a big storm, notice the lack of fire, firetrucks/firemen and how the big tree hit the dumpster instead of the house?
The poor schmuck is frying like an egg on lava rock and you're showing him shade trees and greenery?

There's no fallen wires, too. Whassup wit dat?
I'd totally put up a hammock on that tree.
Pfft, I think that tree has been laying there for 3 weeks and Ruben has had some family living in that dumpster (btw - sawzalled door is hidden from view).

So the trees in Chicago are better behaved than the trees in Florida?

We had a big storm that may or may not have been a tornado in the area, and this tree blew down and landed on a dumpster that just happened to be in the neighbors driveway. The dumpster kept the tree from coming down on the roof of one of the houses, and smashing some stuff in the front yard of the other house. Just proving that the rest of us have less excitement in our life than Ruben. I didn't look in the dumpster, maybe he does have some relatives in there. They'd be freezing though, the temperatures been in the 60's at night!
Definitely, had that been my tree:
1) It would have been on fire.
2) House would be split in two
3) Fire/ambulance/police/news-trucks on scene
4) My daugther running around in circles imitating siren-sounds and screaming fire! fire!
5) My son asking "so, when's the internet coming back?"
6) Rube taking pictures to post on Foo.
7) The Fire Chief asking Rube "you again?".
