The Adventure of the Broken Fence

Some idiot, or drunk hit our fence. I thought the kids would be upset, but they seemed to see it as some kind of triumph over the bench thingies that we so rarely let them climb because the sidewalk is on the other side, and I'm always afraid they'll fall, and then roll into the busy street. QQ especially has been taking great delight in climbing on the fallen log/pole, and sitting on it, now that it's on the ground and has been "conquered".

Here's where the car or truck jumped the curb....

and hit the post, that caused...

the 20 foot tree sized rail to leave the post it was sitting peacefully on and shoot 6 feet across the yard. We think it was a truck, but it was a hit and run, so we have no idea.
Here's the tire track to show how far they went (over the curb, and side walk, about 3 feet into our yard). How fast were they going I wonder?

You know, it all worked out for the best. I'm just going to hack up the 20 foot telephone pole thingy (chainsaw! score!), and then plant a line of shrubs and some tulips over there. It'll be better now because the plants will be able to get more light ;)
