Wind Blows...

The past few days the winds up at my house have been crazy, but today they were extremely strong hitting gusts of 80 to 90 miles an hour. Around late afternoon I was working my computer and I heard a loud crash from the back of my house. I went outside to investigate and everything that was on my deck, chairs, tables, bags on cans and various other things were blown completely off the deck and were now all over my property. Only thing still sitting on the deck was my BBQ. I quickly ran around gathering things up and piling them in a corner of the deck hoping that all the weight we keep thing from blowing away. I'm sure I'm going to have to trek down my hill to recover some things.

One of the more crazy things was the spa. I have a top for it but it's broken so it's being held down by four large concrete stone bricks. Well the wind was so bad that it actually lifted half of the lid and throw the stone about ten feet and they shattered on my ground.

Honestly the winds were so bad that I thought my house was going to get blown right off it's foundation and down the hill. But when the winds died down there was very little damage and I am very thankful for that.

PS.. how many of you know where the title of this blog post is from?
