The wind...your damage?

I came home last night around midnight there was no wind. I was woke up around 2 am, with my portable garage making a bunch of noise. By 3:30am I had to take it apart because the wind was beating me to it. Around 7am my gate came down taking the column with it. It broke some stuff that it landed on. I had to clean up stuff that was knocked/blown over. Aorund 5pm my neighbor come over and asked if I had seen the fence. What are you talking about? The fence on the otherside of the house, on the hill, went down! I now have no gate on my rv side of the house and no fence on the hill on one side!!! I hope the local theives don't notice my lack of gate into my backyard. Or code enforcemnet!!!

What damage has this wind caused you? BTW we 2 more days of the crap!!!!

not too much damage here today, besides loosing many branches and the power was out for a few hours. Cal edison said over 800 homes in long beach were without power due to wind related failures.

BTW my yard is a mess!

Nothing major yet, but realistically I don't have much that can blow over. I'm just hoping another fire doesn't get going up here again.
Wind sucks.

the lake bed out at the hammers was flat out nasty on saturday, we were sitting at the top of wrecking ball and you could look towards the lakebed and see a huge wall of dust and sand. I had to stop at one point on the way back cause the sand was blowing so bad I couldnt see the ground at all, freakin nuts.

Kinda OT but a SCTA offical at land speed races out at El Mirage today got hit by a car coming off a 200 mph run. The wind kicked up half way thru his run and the sand blocked his view. He missed the speed traps veered way off the track and slammed into the SCTA's guy car, throwing him out of his car. It was bad.
He had to be airlifted out.

My parents' neighbor had a tree come down on his truck,saw an overturned Semi on my way to work so they had that Hwy. closed down and EVERY single traffic light was out on the alternate route,not too mention all the trees and street and buisness signs that were all knocked down,almost every tree in a park that's about 3 blocks away from here,making me about 45 minutes late...No real damage though thank God,exept for mine and my wife's cars covered in dirt.

WOW!! That sucks!!

I parked the Harley in the backyard with the cover on it. The cover flew off and is now ruined...it was brand new. I bought it on friday!! The real kicker is the column missed the Harley by about 2 ft!! Thank god it missed!!!!

well there are tree branches down all over the place and fences blown apart everywhere you look. The real bad news is up on the hill. Arrowhead is being taken over by fire and there is one broken out just up the 15 from me. My thoughts are out to the people in Arrowhead.

I grabbed my tow rig, and my wifes car, along with photos and a few other things, but my daily driver and wheelin rig are sitting on the parking deck, probably burnt up by now, if I am looking correctly at the maps of the fires up here I won't know for sure though until I can go back up there.

You know I saw one there on the eastbound side right by the overpass on Mon morning that was right side up but the trailer was smashed on top. Then I saw another one just like it yesterday afternoon. I think the trucks on the overpass were blown over onto them?
