A near miss

I’d like to share with you a real-life, harrowing tale. Last week, I was standing in my backyard. I heard a thunderous bang on the hilltop above. I looked up to see a 40-foot, 36-inch diameter steel and concrete pipe barreling down the hill toward me.
Within seconds, it sped down the hill, across the access road, and hit an oak tree above my backyard. I watched this large oak tree shudder on impact. I was paralyzed with fear. I was frozen and breathless as the pipe came toward me.
