Was right to be worried.

Yup, the storm did it's thing. Beth asked if we could be have taken  it apart and put it up when needed.  No, it's all screwed together and it took 4 guys to put it together and get it up only 2 short weeks ago.  Now it looks like this.
This was from the first gusts of wind. 

Well I guess Mother Nature didn't feel it was pushed enough.

Hoping it didn't do any damage to the top or under the camper.  Don't need any holes in either part.

This is my brother-in-laws tarp we always put up when we have a gathering. See the cement block I sat on it.  Well that was one of the weights that was supposed to hold it in place.  So much for that.  It blew it right into our suburban.  Crushed my flowers but that is minor.  They will regrow.

This is what the tarp poles did to the surburban.  Have a call into the ins. co.  Jack tried to talk to the claims part but got some joker from India you can't hear or understand.   Call our man here an left a message on his cell phone. 

Needless to say, not a real happy camper today.  Hope your day is better.


  1. OH, I hate to see this. The reason I suggested taking it down each time was because at one time we had one that we had to take down and put up each time. I am so sorry that happened to you. I hope you can salvage it.

  2. The small tornado here threw a grain bin into an out building on a farmer's property. I know that wind is amazingly powerful when it arrives in strength. Sorry about this my friend.

  3. Oh crap Terry! That's terrible. We just had a heckuva storm a few hours ago. Ultra high winds, lightening and hail-- Nickel sized. But I have no damage. I am so sorry that happened to your new gazebo. And the Suburban too. :-(((

  4. Bad weather abounds everywhere. We had another vicious thunder and lightning storm. It was quiet the show on my swim home.
    I'm sorry to here about the damage.

  6. Hi there! thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! sorry to see the damage you had there. our regular Texas winds are fierce enough to topple most things, but tornados and bad storms sure get scary...

    I hope the rest of summer treats you better than this!
