We had a terrible storm that hit at 1am and again at 3am this morning. Papa Bear and I both jumped out of bed thinking the roof was about to come off the house. We had to wait until daylight to see how bad the damage was. When we went on the porch we found the flag pole down.
The Martin house was down. It took out an apple tree when it fell.
It took out part of the fence surrounding the pool and GS's play yard.
A small arbor was blown down that a coral vine grows on each year,
The west side of the fence was only laid over with one of the 4 x 4 post snapped.
This gate got slammed pretty good. It is supposed to open out not in.
One of the hoop houses is partially destroyed.
The covering on the shade house was ripped down the middle.
Two of the walls blew off the turkey house
The two walls slammed into the old side of the fence and has caused it to lean.
Mom's patio table and chairs outside of her camper (beside our house)was turned over and she lost some skirting.
Either the camper shifted some or the steps. Mom was awake during the 1st storm and we slept. We woke up during the second storm at 3 when I thought the roof was blowing off!. I looked out our back patio and didn't see Mom's lights. I was going to go get her and bring her to our house but she was asleep and by then the winds had died down.
I thank God none of us were hurt and our home itself had no damage. All cats, dogs, chickens, goats and turkeys are accounted for and no injuries!
I called our insurance company at 7:30 am and they actually had an adjuster out here by 9:30 am. I am impressed. Of course since Hurricane Katrina (which didn't hit Florida) our homeowners insurance has tripled in price. We'll see how everything goes. Now comes the clean up....ugggggg
