1/4 of a Buckeye Tree fell in the front

Part of a Buckeye Tree fell

S W side of Cedar Rapids, over by Linnwood Cemetery, about a 1/4 of our neighbor's Buckeye Tree fell over across our front yard and into the street, close to our car! We were the lucky ones, no one hurt, & no real damage done! Our neighbors & us just spent our Memorial Day morning sawing, cutting, & cleaning up a big mess. Our prayers & thoughts out to all of those people affected by this last storm and tornadoes!
