Have you see the video?

Dude, who lives somewhere off near New Iberia, had a big tree in his back yard. For reasons unknown to me, his wife was sitting, looking out the back window, watching the tree.

"We got to get out of here," she finally said.

So Dude took the wife and the dog and his video camera in the back yard and started taping the tree.

At first you can only see that the ground around the base of the tree - the ground near the camera - is starting to bulge upward. The grounds pushes up, more and more, and then the tree falls right over, taking out half the guy's house.


"But you know," I told Sonya, "on the bright side there will be no disputing what happened with the insurance agent."
