HOUSE HIT BY TREE SECOND TIME IN IN 20 YEARS

In 1995 Clayton McQueen had a tree fall through part of his house on Robin  Trail in Conroe. That was almost twenty years ago. Sunday evening about 6:30pm as he sat in his recliner thinking about taking a nap he heard a loud crash.  That loud crash was a pine tree falling on his home, crushing his roof and coming to rest just above the room Clayton was in. A neighbor was first on the scene and was able to force the door and get McQueen out.

Other neighbors heard the crash and also came running. New Caney Fire Department responded along with MCHD. McQueen was uninjured.

    Not the healthiest of trees, was it?. Needs to move where God won’t find him…

    Mr. Sullivan? Mr. Sullivan! (taps on the ceiling with a broom stick) God just took out Mrs. Gruper’s birdbath.

    He’s getting closer, Clive. Last year, it was streetlight at the end of the block. Now it’s Mrs. Gruper’s birdbath. I think God’s zeroing in on me. I have the feeling this is the year he lowers the boom.

    I should.

    There’s probably a reward.

    Most of the time those pine trees just break off in a storm instead of uproot because their roots go way (straight) down into the ground. Oak tree roots go out and are shallow, so they are usually the ones you see uprooting. We cut all the trees near our house and so far, no limbs or trees on it. I love shade and trees everywhere, but I have seen too many traumatic experiences like this. Good luck with cleanup and repair.
