All good guesses, but it was in the path of a tornado. Several homes in that area were completely gone.
This isn't where I live but at a place in another state where I was working recently. If you look closely you can see the twist in the splinters. I understand the power of a tornado, but I have never been able to comprehend how it gets ahold of a round, slick pole like that and twists it off at the ground. And, no sign of the rest of the pole anywhere.
And, I wish it was a buck rub!
