Near miss!
This is the trailer I use as a basecamp for most of my hikes. I'd arrived at the Davidson River Campground in Pisgah National Forest much later than I'd anticipated and didn't park my trailer where I was supposed to. If I had, this pine would have fallen directly across my trailer during the near-hurricane force winds during the windstorm.

What if the snow had released just as we were driving under it??
