I think something above just stepped in.

Tonight, something amazing and really frightening happened.

I went out to redhead_sue and jd_trouble's apartment in Queens to work on TES Fest.

Seeing as it is unbearably hot out, and trains would have been a pain in the ass, I took my car and drove out to them.

While I was there, a quick but major storm rolled through the city. It seemed like it lasted a half hour at most.

After it subsided, I went to my car and drove home to my usual parking spot.

Except, I couldn't park there.

Because something was in the way.

Namely, a tree.

A HUGE FUCKING TREE FELL PRECISELY WHERE MY CAR WAS.

I was in Queens, which is a damn good thing, because if I wasn't, my car would have been totaled.

I'm not a religious man, but... wow. You got to think about it.

Wow! That's good that your car wasn't there. I can tell you that finding your car crushed by a tree just is not fun.

kathryntact tried to joke with me last night about Eddie Murphy's Coming to America. While I was too frazzled to really laugh then, now it's pretty good. Where does one save a car? In Queens!!!

Careful. I just might come to your house every time there is a storm now.
