Unfortunate confluence

Tree limb meets up with car in a bad way

This was the scene on the 600 block of 36th Avenue E. this afternoon after a gusting wind passed through the neighborhood, causing a very large tree branch to topple onto a car that had been parked in a more exposed position than its driver probably realized. The car  behind the battered Honda appears to have come off unscathed.

Wind speeds in the Seattle area were reported to be as high as 40 mph today, so there were plenty of opportunities for area trees to shed some foliage. These photos were taken by blog reader David Chapman while on an afternoon stroll in Washington Park.
