House Crunched by Crane Today in Morningside

I was just lollygagging on my way home from CVS this afternoon. This just didn't look right. Thank goodness there were no injuries.

(Update on Crane Crunched House 2012-11-28 )

It was so quiet.

The neighbors had started gathering. It was right in front of us. It was so odd.


The next door neighbor said there was a BIG noise and she grabbed the kids.

The crane was reaching over the house removing a dangerous tree chunk by chuck.

The last chuck didn't cooperate, the chunk that broke the ridge's back.

It's supposed rain tonight.

Some knock on the door.

Boutte Tree has a great reputation in the neighborhood. I know they'll make this right.
