Parking Lot Hazard...

So I head out to my car this morning to grab my snowboard and bring it to my office, when I hear a loud boom, sounded like a bomb had just gone off... Walked back about 3 rows behind me, and realize a tree had fallen onto this dudes car! He is not going to be so happy after coming back from riding today...


It appears the tree's roots just gave up on life and it just fell over, talk about shitty luck, but could have been so much worse about 1 hr earlier while the parking lot was busy with people...

Funny how so many of the cars in the lot are beaters / vans / pickups, and the tree finds the nice shiny RX8

word it goes straight for the nice car, he deserves it trying to show everyone up with a nice car. an even more amusing part is the fact that the beater right next to it looks to have not even been touched

That's what he gets for buying a limp-wristed RX-8.

Seriously though, it always sucks when something happens to your car.

Who the hell drives something like that to a mountain. That's about as funny as the dumb ass in the Ferrari at Keystone last year that didn't know how to drive it and kept bottoming it out in the muddy spring parking lot.

haha, your right Method, the beater corrola next to it barely got a scratch. I think this car actually belongs to the son-in-law of the newly hired CFO of the company - which was purchased by the CFO for him, so if that's the case it's hard to feel too bad...

Im confused how you can even fit a snowboard or skis in that thing though, must be a renter or something.
