fan of fanboys At end of day wasn't horrible. Just under $5K in damage. They gave me $725 for cutting tree and replacing some shingles myself. So that goes towards my deductible. And he gave more $ towards my grill than I paid for it. Plus gave me money to have master bedroom repainted professionally but I just painted last year. So at end of day I may actually make a couple dollars off if it.

Dang! That sucks.... sorry to hear it.... sigh... The most we have here from wind damage is the 6 foot wooden fences get torn out in 8 ft sections and sail like a kite into cars. No big trees where Im at....

Nice!
I grilled on one last summer and fell in love. I am looking at investing in one this summer. I hear if taken care of they last a very long time too.

That sucks, looks like you won't be grilling this weekend. We were getting drilled with wind down her in Statesboro too.
Ha thankfully I wasn't home at the time

Also gotta replace gutters, couple pieces of vinyl siding, and potentially some roof damage. Which sucks bc I got a new roof in Nov

s3nt3nc3d It was a nice wind storm here...Dayton had gusts up to 60mph yesterday. lol

flyfish29 That must have sucked. Glad your ok. Good thing your windshield wasn't down

All I keep thinking about is whatever the movie was where they attached the cable to the motorcycle cops belt and when he drove off he was yanked off his bike.

I hear that wind storm is headed our way here in NH.

Down line in a wind storm

I hit a semi downed line tonite in a wind storm going over 50. No damage. But damn it was scary!!!
