Pretty sure that a tornado touched down near by us. Sky looked like what Chad posted, and as soon as that went over us all hell broke loose. Winds were the highest I've ever witnessed, hail and rain were falling so hard that we couldnt see more than a few feet outside the windows.

We had a large limb fall from our white walnut tree, some of the metal roofing ripped from our barn, fence knocked over and paint chipped off the west side of the house.


My friends parents house just down the road had their snowmobile trailer thrown a good 30 feet, and his boat rolled over.

But the worst is my friend Matts old neighbor just around the corner from us. His roof was ripped off of their home.

Ill try to get all the pictures up here if I can.

Orion is flat out hammered. Trees uprooted by the dozens. Saw crushed houses, crushed cars, etc. All the roofs seem damaged out by M24. Still several roads closed, almost 24 hours later. Will attach photos once internet comes back, cant do it from my phone.

This is some of the flooding in Gladwin today. Some from the Riverwalk Place, you might be familiar from the Jeep Creep.
