A most interesting erection

Sorry...had to make the joke because that's exactly what it is.
My Abies pindrow was basically untouched by this winter, other than the leader being lost. I assumed a new one would just form from a bud. But that isn't what happened. I wished I'd photographed the progress, but one of the formerly horizontal branchlets right below the former leader has, all summer, been angling upward. BIg rain events seem to be triggers for another 10 degrees or so. Has anyone observed this before? Looks like it will get close to 90 degrees vertical by the end of the year. The one on the right used to be completely flat, like the one on the left.
