Tree in the Street?

So I was driving home from work today, headed down my street. At the corner where I usually turn there is a white van sitting there jutted out in the middle of the intersection. I'm thinking to myself, what is that moron doing there half out in the street where I need to turn? I get a little closer about ready to turn right and what do I see in front of me?? The neighbor's 50 foot tree in the middle of the road. Quite the sight! Actually I've never seen anything quite like it before in my life. Jamie, along with the whole neighborhood were standing outside staring at this giant arboreal monstrosity. We knew this day would come at some point, didn't think it would happen this soon but it did. This tree had been rotting out, you could visibly see it near the top, but apparently it was also rotting out at the base too. And today was its last day standing.

I used to worry that when the tree went, it might go for the house. Does anyone live net door? Was there a storm or did it just fall?

Some people are renting the house, the guy who bought it last summer has fixed it up pretty well. It has been raining a lot but it just randomly fell. Really weird.

Did the city come clean it up or did someone have to hire someone?

Some people came that evening to chop up the big pieces in the street and then some people from the city came the next morning to clean up the rest of it.
