Downed tree

So I just heard a crashing sound and went onto the deck to see this. Big old mostly, maybe all, dead pine just went down. So much rain the ground is quite saturated, so even though the winds weren't extraordinarily high - gusts to 30 mph - the tree couldn't stand. At least it went down the ridge, not sideways, though it still wouldn't have hit my house. (Might have hit the neighbors' if it had fallen uphill.)

Worst thing is, it took out several smaller trees when it fell, and one was the tree I'd seen the bluebirds preparing to nest in. This late in April, they might have had a nest already there. Hopefully they can find another spot close around.
