A Dangerous Trend?

Seen on our bike ride yesterday afternoon, this tree/truck trauma is about a mile as the crow flies from the incident that we posted about on Sunday. Although the story of two big old oaks crashing and destroying vehicles in a week seems like serious stuff, TSG can't find any news items or online mentions of this second sudden oak death. We certainly hope that this isn't a portent of things to come!

Watch Out For That Tree

Perusing the local news this morning, this headline caught our eye: Two hurt when towering oak tree shatters and falls in Willow Glen park. Sure enough, the park in question was the scene of the legendary "Free Admission" gig (albeit way on the other side of the park). We took the short walk down to Willow Street to document the dying dendroid event. (According to the news story, the injuries were minor)
