Boulders falling off a mountain absolutely demolish barn, barely miss farmhouse .

January 31, 2014 | By Abraham

For a few minutes, a couple weeks ago, a quiet farm in Northern Italy became a scene of complete insanity as a boulder that had careered down the mountain behind the farm barrelled through the barn like it was constructed of no more than toothpicks, leaving it utterly demolished…

This has happened before. But not for a very long time. Standing as a testament to the possibility of a massive rock falling off the mountain, the rock in foreground of this picture has been in the field for years…

Looks like little Brother finally came to see his Bro!
Another rock broke free at the same time as the one that ruined the barn, but it came to a stop just barely shy of the farmhouse.

Despite the thoroughness of the wreckage, no one was hurt in this bizarre accident.

That vehicle nearly took a hard pounding.
I see there is an boulder which made his way down a while ago,that would have been bad news,straight in line with the main house.

Could kinda give new meaning to the terms "Rock 'n Roll" / "Rock the house down" :D:

Never choose "Rock" when playing "Rock, paper, scissors". :twisted:
