The way the news media is talking, before this hurricane is over every tree in metro DC will be blown down. We can expect 70+ miles per hour gusts from 6pm tonight to 3am tomorrow. The last thing I want is a tree limb or a whole tree crashing on my car.
So I took a look at the satellite view of my apartment parking lot and determined the location that is farthest from any tree, and moved my car there. Anal? Or smart? You be the judge. But while everyone else if fighting with their insurance companies over the tree damage, I’ll be happy that my 12-year-old beast lived through it unscathed.
