Well, we had a "bit" of wind roll through here early this AM:
My car was on the left side of the driveway
Yesterday afternoon, that house was obscured by 100 feet of trees. They all came down between 2:30 and 4:00 AM. Poor dog was a quivering whimpering mess from the sounds of cracking and falling trees. The fallen tree in the background is at least 100 feet tall (that's not even half of it).
When I moved my car to safer ground and put wife's (undamaged) in the garage around 3:15 AM, I had no idea this had happened. Didn't see it until I could finally leave the house around 9:30 AM when the wires on road trap had been cleaned up in one direction. House still doesn't have power (lost it roughly 3:00 AM).
Humans sleep soundly in their beds because rough cats stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.
