High Unexpected Winds

Supper time tonight, it seemed as we were going to get rain, so we decided to hurry and BarBque up our supper of Hamburgers and hot dogs.
Then out of the blue a strong wind began and within a minute it turned to 100 km winds. We ran to close buildings, grap our awning on our trailer that broke and took off over the trailer. It was totally terrible. Trees were falling all around us. The whole storm lasted about 1/2 hour, and the rain has just stopped.

HB is trying to fix the awning, and we are still trying to pick up things that blew in the yard.
Trees fell on buildings.
 Trees fell on fences.
All we could here and see were trees cracking
A large branch fell on my Beetle,but lucky did not do any damage.
We lost the chicken coop door. The wind tore it right off the hinges.

I found my cloths line on the ground broke from a tree as well.
Even my poor flowers were tacked by the strong winds and rain.
The next few days will be busy picking up and cutting up and trying to put our home back together. Thankfully we were all alright.


  1. That looks scary. I am glad your family is safe!

    I hope you are able to get things fixed soon.


  2. I am so glad that your family is safe. Those are strong winds.

    I hope that you can fix things quickly and will be safe.
