Wind Storm

29 Apr

We had a pretty severe wind blow through here Sunday night. The local newspaper reports some people saying a small tornado came through and I might agree with that. I have a lot of limbs down in the yard as well of lots of loose debris that blew from behind the shop. My neighbor has 3 small trees down in his yard and the lean-to roof on his shop was blown loose and he had a full-size freezer on his carport that blew over.

I walked back to the gully and spotted this trunk split from the main tree. I had just looked at that tree a few days before and thought that tree is going to come down any time now.

I know it’s sort of hard to see, but just 100 feet away I spotted two more trunks split.

I had this tree completely broken off at the ground.

The only thing I discover wrong with our house is a piece of steel siding trim on the eave blew loose. I hope all of the shingles are OK. All in all it could have been a lot worse. But, we were safe and snug in our storm proof bedroom and we didn’t even hear a thing. Keep prepping everyone.

    It’s been blowing 55 mph here all day. Hard to feed hay when it just wants to blow away! Glad your house stayed in one piece… For the most part.

      Yeah, those strong winds all day long will just make you go crazy sometimes.
