Workers attempt to remove a 100,000-pound crane that fell onto the Santa Rosa, Calif., home of Michelle and Kevin McCarthy on Nov. 17. The couple had hired a contractor to remove a 150-year-old oak tree in the backyard for fear that it could fall. Instead, the crane fell and sliced through the house the McCarthys moved into just a few months earlier. No one was home at the time and there were no injuries.

I always cringe when someone takes a tree down. Occassionally there is good reason, and the tree is a hazard. This tree looks pretty solid though. I hate to say it..but that might just be some karma coming at them…
