So that's what woke me up!

We had a tremendous thunderstorm here yesterday afternoon, complete with hail. Not round hail, but smooth flattened circles. Strange. Anyway, we enjoy a good storm (unlike certain members of my family) and kept moving from one vantage point to another.

That's when we noticed this.
And this.
Then, I remembered waking up around 2 and hearing a car trying to start, and failing, several times, before revving it's engine and peeling out. Turns out Ameranth heard it too. That driver was darn lucky, and so were we I guess. He hit that tree and stopped (hard, it seems) a foot away from the dog fence. He/she also missed a boulder by about 6 inches, and if the car had gone straight, it would have hit our well head. And, if it had flipped or gone flying- that's our bedroom in that corner. Good luck all around. Especially since the driver could still drive after the hit, I assume there was no serious damage.

I am hoping the presumed drunk driver was startled badly by the tree face sticking it's tongue out!

Oh my goodness, that's scary! Hopefully, this person learnt their lesson! Luckily, the damage was pretty minor.
Cool tree-face! My mother-in-law has one of those too, and I think they're neat!
