Limbs on limbs

Before you set up a tent for the night you typically check several things; is the ground fairly level and free of rocks/or roots and are the trees free of loose or dead branches. After having done this i set up my tent and just as I was finishing there came a resounding “crack” from above. A rather large branch from a very much alive birch tree was falling on course to crush my cherished abode. At the last moment it somehow twisted to the side and missed the tent. I and the others with me stood in amazement at what had just happened. I escaped the incident with only a minor injury
