damn wind storm!!!

well last night here in pdx we had some gusts (40-60MPH) and well my harbor freight garage....well it didnt come out unscathed....
not only did the gust move it about a foot over it also twisted some of the poles that make up its framing

also in its moving around it knocked poor bobstar over in to vanvan at the start of the storm (no damage) so i moved bobstar to the porch and hoped for the best for the other bikes in the shed

THIS MORNING..............
i go out and its moved a bit more and one of the anchor screw thingy that is about 16" into the ground was bent over sideways and half ripped out of the ground O.O also theres a few small rips in the roof
looked inside both vanvan and the honja are fallen over ;( again luckily no damage as they fell over into soft wet grass

so so glad the V was in side safe and sound

anyone else get blow around or have any damage ?

It's been a bit rough here in Napa.

My buddy built his house by hand using wood milled from his property and another tree totally wrecked it.
