Windstorm in the mountains

Got the nastiest windstorm (gallery here) come through and sit on us all night on June 6. Up at Carter Lake, the top winds clocked were 101 MPH, but I think we might have beaten that wind speed (120 MPH from the top of Lee Hill).

At midnight, we saw that our arch over the stairway was gone, and the BBQ and deck chairs had collapsed the railing. The hot tub cover had been ripped off, and I had to go find it. We brought everything in. I slept with earplugs.


In the morning, the privacy lattice for the hot tub collapsed under the continued wind, and I realized that the stairs had completely separated from the deck.


$1K deductible and everything should be back to normal.
