That was delightful, Joan.  It reminds me of something that happened to a cabin near my home in Estes Park.

It was a rented cabin.  The people there were slobs.  In an area where fires were a constant threat and below a ponderosa pine, which would explode as a fireball if ignited, they would cook out with the flames reaching four or so feet above the charcoal broiler.

One night we had huge winds, and the tree totally flattened their pickup.  I always thought of it as arbol revenge.

A LOT of trees fell in my yard in 2004, thanks to Charlie, Frances, and Jeanne.  
There are still big oaks that could fall in some yet-to-be-named hurricane.  IF 
a tree just has to fall on my house, a fate I've so far avoided, would you all 
please wish that it would fall on my 35-year-old kitchen?  

It's almost as ugly as Kelly's kitchen.  Think avacado and gold snowflaked 
formica counters, fake walnut cabinets with Mediterranean pulls, drop ceiling 
with plastic lenses over the flourescent lights, gouged lineoleum flooring, etc.  
I have to lie on the floor to see what's in the back of the bottom cabinets.  

To make it trail related, that kitchen is the source of many, many meals for FT 
long-distance hikers and for trail work crews, SCA trail crews, volunteer 
vacation trail crews, etc.
