Crash Course

A few weeks ago, during a rainstorm, my aunt and I heard this loud *crack* near the house, but couldn't see anything odd. Yesterday, around 2 in the afternoon, I heard a more creaking *crack* followed by a metal jangle. I'd presumed it was just some metal-thing of my uncle's falling off of a tree-branch, but well, when I looked out into the side-yard...

Our guess is that the distant storm cracked the branch (if you can call that just "a branch"), the wood slowly died (or more likely, was already dead but now loose), soaked up some of the last week's rain, and that made it heavy enough to topple over.
