Five minutes after I parked my car, a tree fell on it.

On Tuesday, May 15th I pulled into my driveway, in my small Connecticut neighborhood, under a grey sky. As soon as I walked in the house, the lights flickered. And then suddenly there was a loud “Crack!” and “Crash!” and the sound of breaking glass. I looked out the window and trees were bent 90 degrees, then snapping, and then flying up instead of falling down.

As quickly as it came, it passed. When I stepped outside, my first thought was that my car has seen better days.
