What is it about Fridays?

We had a bear in our back yard on Friday, walking right past our glass door across the deck. She jumped over the fence while I was calling Animal Control. We drove off to work having no idea she was up in one of our big ponderosa pines, right over our heads, until we saw it on the evening news! Our tree is the one with the light brown bear. Wow.

Two weeks ago Friday another of our ponderosas took a direct lightning strike. Bark and pieces of fence-post were scattered up to 40 feet away. And it was LOUD! Aimée practically fainted. Hopefully the tree will be alright.
