Freak Storm

Today was the freakiest weather I have seen. It was overcast, most of the day. Then it started raining- pretty hard. Then the wind started to blow.

But this wind was stronger than anything we have seen, short of a super typhoon we experienced in Guam, many years ago. It was only a burst of wind, not lasting long, but it must have been near or over 100 mph. It could have been a tornado, but since we had the shutters closed, I couldn't be sure.

It blew down 2 metal trusses that spanned our back patio and held up a very nice shade vine. That came crashing down. We had actually debated taking that down, but decided to wait. I guess the decision has been made for us. Note the before and after
