2 Gutters ripped off,
Most of my leaves blown away,
Garbage cans toppled about,
Grill flung over railing,
2 beer bottles left out on the deck smached to smitherins

Yep the wind blew a **** load of water out of the river. I was looking at it while I was at work I could see sagnasty river muck on either side of the river. There was a tractor stuck out in the muck at the mouth of the river idk if it got stuck out there today or if it has been there and is just visible on acount of the low water level.

gotta be gusts of 50 or better here. ever been on a ladder in that kind of crap? I was up there making sure the siding dodn't blow off where it was getting loose. Trash cans were 2 blocks away....kids playset was in the neighbors yard...and as I type this, something just made a bad noise. Gotta go see what just blew off the house. SOunded like the sat dish. No biggie, got rid of that stupid service months ago and just been too lazy to take the dish down....maybe the storm helped me.
