The rains kept coming before spring even arrived. It was a really weird winter with too many freeze and thaw cycles. The heavy rains made the ground outside a mud pit anywhere you stepped. Our yard was like soup. The conditions caused a situation where we had to call a Nassau County tree service. I was outside going to my car in the driveway to go on my daily commute to work. I heard a noise and turned around. I watched as a huge oak tree in our yard slowly started to lean to the left toward our house. I ran into the house to get everyone away from the side the tree was on. We all ran outside in a panic away from the direction the tree was falling.
We watched the tree slowly keep leaning toward the house.
